"The driving force behind the Give Me A Chance Foundation is to 'give back' the time, understanding and guidance underprivileged kids never have the chance to experience. Our programs have positively impacted the lives of hundreds of disadvantaged children. Events like our Celebrity Charity Golf Classic significantly broaden the framework of the foundation and strengthen our position in the charity arena," said Werner Koos, Board of Directors President, Give Me A Chance Foundation.
