ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 7, 2011 – Cam Janssen of the St. Louis Blues Hockey Team is a wonderful advocate for local charities. On Wednesday, June 22, Cam gave back in a big way by participating and emceeing at the Walker Scottish Rite Clinic for Childhood Language Disorders annual benefit KidTalk Golf Outing. After spending a beautiful day on the Tapawingo National Golf Course in Sunset Hills, Cam joined the other golfers for dinner and emceed the live auction bringing his unmistakable energy to help raise much-needed funds for the Clinic.

The Clinic raised nearly $75,000 for speech and language therapy resultant of this golf event. Because all services are provided free the Walker Scottish Rite Clinic relies on fundraisers such as the Golf Outing to support the programs. Golfers experienced hospitality tents throughout the course, an opportunity to win a 2011 Lexus as a hole-in-one prize from Mungenast Lexus of St. Louis and premium player gifts.

The evening program began with a fabulous carved beef tenderloin and fried chicken dinner catered by Westwood Catering. Janssen did a great job emceeing and highlighted the importance of the parent testimonial by the Pike family. Once the live auction began Janssen had the full attention of the audience. “It couldn’t have been a better day to enjoy being out on the course and raising money for kids who need speech and language therapy,” says Cam Janssen, right wing for the St. Louis Blues.
