In the past six years the Bowen Classic has raised over a million dollars for charities that help children. This year a portion of the proceeds will go to Avance and the Boys and Girls Club, in Wade’s hometown of Waco, TX. Avance, a charity whose mission is to unlock America’s potential by strengthening families in at-risk communities through effective parent education and support programs. The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, a charity whose mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring responsible citizens.
