The Joey Gratton Championship Gives Back

There is no greater and more fulfilling investment in the future than children. With the proper guidance and support those children will thrive and make the world a better place. No one can resist the energy and the happiness a child’s smile can bring. As the saying goes, there is no greater reward or measure of success than having made a positive difference in a child’s life. We are fortunate to have organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club and the Joey Gratton Foundation that exist to give kids a chance to succeed. They provide guidance, hope, and a helping hand for a bright future.
