Theo Fleury will be part of this summer’s SIGA Dakota Dunes Open golf tournament.
Fleury joins a group of celebrities playing in the Graham Slam Celebrity Exhibition Match.
The Graham Slam, featuring PGA Tour golfer and Weyburn native Graham DeLaet, will kick of the SIGA Dakota Dunes Open June 20. The match will see Fleury and two other celebrities in an exclusive “no ropes” exhibition golf match.
“I can’t envision a better way to give back to the Saskatchewan community than being a part of the Graham Slam Exhibition Match,” said Fleury in a release.
“I’m sure the event will be a memorable experience for the players, spectators, and the charity – and I’m excited to play alongside Graham and the other celebrities and show them my golf game!”
Fleury’s country music band, The Death Valley Rebels, will also headline a concert that evening.
“I was growing up when Theo was drafted by the Calgary Flames in 1987, won a (Stanley) Cup there in his rookie year, and I was hooked,” said DeLaet in a release. “I don’t think it’s any secret that they are my team, and it’s great that Theo will be a part of Graham Slam to represent my passion for hockey and the Flames.”
The other two celebrities taking part in the Graham Slam are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation will use the overall event week as a platform to raise funds to improve children’s health and wellness across Saskatchewan.
The SIGA Dakota Dunes Open starts June 23.
