“This event is a special one for me because it was the CSOP’s inaugural event and marks the start of every new season for us,” said CSOP Founder Matt Stout. “Food banks have always been some of my favorite causes to support. We’ve run this event five times and netted five figures for the food bank every time. Now we’re blessed and grateful to have the support of the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation and players like Ryan Reaves who donate time and money to help us do good, better.”
