Proceeds from the event will benefit the Ryan and Jenny Dempster Family Foundation in their fight against 22q (also known as DiGeorge Syndrome).  Dempster’s daughter Riley has DiGeorge syndrome, which is a chromosome abnormality that can cause a wide range of health and developmental issues. Since its inception in January 2010, the foundation has raised more than $1.1 million.
