Wayside Waifs – Top Dog Classic with Drew Butera

Here’s the pitch: It’s the first annual Top Dog Classic with Drew Butera, and it benefits Wayside Waifs. Here’s the swing: Wait – it’s a golf club? That’s right. Top Golf was the site for the August 20th event. The fun featured Royals players and coaches mingling with guests, delicious food and refreshments and plenty of golf!
