The second annual GP M.A.D.E. golf tournament was held August 16, with 206 participants joining the tournament to support the foundation. ABC17’s Andrew Kauffman reported that, while it was difficult to put the event together due to COVID-19 health and safety restrictions, Coach Pinkel was thrilled by the ability of his team to throw the tournament together in support of their cause.
“You really want to do something significant,” Pinkel said. “…You change a generation, and I get chills thinking about it because it’s true and it’s real. That’s kind of what we’re trying to do and there’s many different ways of doing it.”
The golf tournament is held every year with all proceeds going to research for children and youth facing lymphoma and leukemia cancers, assisting children and youth with physical challenges and aiding children and youth experiencing economic and social challenges.
