What is the Devun Walsh Charity Classic?
On a crisp evening during the spring of 2013, after a late evening pick up skate, conversation between Devun Walsh and the owners of the KNOWSHOW veered to the topic of golf. Ever humble, Devun wanted to find a way to utilize his stature in the action sport community to help give back to the community through his life’s other passion, golf.
By teaming up with Canada’s Premier Lifestyle tradeshow, the KNOWSHOW, the Devun Walsh Charity Classic (DWCC) was born. Bringing together friends, colleagues and cohorts from all walks of life, DWCC participants unite on the course with a shared goal of raising funds for exceptional causes that benefit kids and their families.
