Bobby Kielty, Oakland A’s Outfielder, was the two time reigning champion and made the final table for the third straight year.

Who is EGF?

Jul 24th, 2008 | By admin | Category: EGF News

The Eddie Guardado Foundation (EGF), through Ava’s Friends, funds individual families affected by Autism by reducing their out of pocket expenses for therapy and treatment.

We also join with other similar groups in lobbying Washington as well as State governments on behalf of these families in the hope that more can be done through MedicAid and private insurance to see that every child with Autism can get access to proven treatments.

Grants from EGF paid directly to identified caregivers on behalf of each family provide direct relief by offsetting the costs of existing treatment plans or by providing access to care they’ve never been able to afford.
