Additionally, students from Manch Elementary joined the amateurs for the clinic followed by a tour of the Travis Mathew Awesome bus. The students are recipients from Blessings in a Backpack, a local charity providing free meals to local youth on the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program that the Pro Am supports each year. The Pro Am also raises funds for four local charities including Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Las Vegas and the Transportation Fund of the local Zelzah Shrine Temple.
