As part of the charity weekend, our online auction and fundraising activities will also support Dove Youth Development. Bid on exclusive sports memorabilia, signed merchandise, and unique experiences. 

Here's how it all started:


Ron Rice discovered the perfect opportunity during a conversation with a close friend. This friend had just returned from Dove Youth Development, where they had successfully hosted a basketball camp. Recognizing the potential to impact the lives of children in dire need, Ron saw an opening to to help in the Dominican Republic. Bonus-American Football had just been introduced to the DR and the American Football league started in March of 2023.


And so, the idea was born - a fun-filled weekend that not only introduces American football to the youth but also emphasizes the values of leadership, teamwork, confidence, and discipline.


Ron, along with his collaborator Adrian Murrell, is on a mission to create a memorable experience for the children while making a positive impact on their lives.But that's not all!


Ron reached out to two incredible individuals, Steve Stanley and Dr. Greta Anderson, to diversify the event and share their extensive knowledge of golf, tournaments, and golf camps for kids. Together, they are creating a unique and well-rounded experience that goes beyond the football field.
