SASKATOON – The Mackenzie Tour – PGA Tour Canada is returning to Saskatoon for a ninth straight year. The SIGA Dakota Dunes Open goes in June and once again Saskatchewan’s own Graham DeLaet will be front and centre.

The Weyburn product will again be using the tournament as an opportunity to raise money for the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation, which supports local children’s charities.

“Our goal is to support children’s health and wellness causes, to raise awareness for our Foundation, and for everyone to have a great time throughout the event week,” said Delaet.

“The incredible support that Graham has received throughout his career – from an amateur golfer to a professional – is a testament to the people of Saskatchewan,” added Ruby DeLaet.

“It just makes us that much more passionate about giving back to the community, knowing that it will continue to be paid forward”.

The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation has raised over $600,000 for charities in Saskatchewan since 2014.
