YAKIMA, Wash.-- The 5th Annual "Breakfast with the Pros" is coming up this Friday.

It's a fundraiser for the "First Tee of Yakima" organization, which teaches kids skills and life lessons through the game of golf. Joe Louis Barrow Jr. is the main speaker at the event; he's the son of famous boxer Joe Louis.

Organizers say the program is especially helpful for kids from underprivileged households.

"This just brings all of those life skills and all of the life teaching skills that we offer them back into their daily living," says Launee Wolverton with First Tee of Yakima.

It's happening at the Yakima Convention Center this Friday from 7:30 am to 9:00 am. Tickets cost 75 dollars. Reserve them by calling 949-6349.
