The fundraiser was an initiative by SDSS Football coach Joey Wentworth ‘in memoriam’ for a former student player, Jack Drury, who took his own life one year ago.
The first annual ‘Dirt Bowl‘, co-sponsored by The Queen’s of Port Elgin, raised $9,100 that was divided between the Royals football team and WES (Wellness & Emotional Support) for Youth on-line, with each receiving $4,550.

As part of the tournament, there will be a ‘Shoot for Jack’ on hole #9 where anyone can take their turn for $5 at closest to the hole. The tournament kicks off at noon and some on-site registrations will be accepted along with ‘Shoot for Jack’ donations.
