Stepping up to match Graham’s donation are PGA TOUR Canada, ATB Financial and Saskatoon businessman David Dube. With their support the grand total of $36,000 will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross to aid Alberta flood relief.

The ATB Financial Classic, a PGA TOUR Canada event in Calgary was canceled due to the floods that ravaged the area.  DeLaet won the ATB Financial Classic in Calgary in 2009.

“It breaks my heart to see the flooding images of Calgary and Southern Alberta," said DeLaet. I wanted to show my support and do what I could to help.  It is also amazing to have the PGA TOUR Canada, ATB Financial and David Dube join me in the fund raising effort.  Alberta is strong and will recover.”

In addition, Graham wrote “YYC” and “For Alberta” on his golf hat as a symbol of his support and was followed during his final round by CBS which featured images from the flooding in Calgary.

DeLaet is the honorary co-chair of PGA TOUR Canada's Dakota Dunes Open in Saskatoon July 4-7 and the Graham DeLaet Charity Golf Tournament on July 11 which benefits junior golf in Saskatchewan.
