The KWLA tournament is named in honor of the late wife of Big Rock board member, Casey Wagner, who lost her battle with cancer in 2008. Keli was enthusiastic about the success of this tournament and she played a vital role in having the proceeds donated to the cancer clinic. In 2020, the KWLA tournament donated $25,000 towards the improvement of patient comfort & care.
