Heroes For Kids Pro-Am to be made open to the public
Wisconsin's only Pro-Am charity golf event featuring Wisconsin's very own PGA Tour professionals – Jerry Kelly, Mark Wilson, JP Hayes and Skip Kendall – along with many other PGA Touring pros, will be teeing it up once again to raise money for several very worthy charities on July 30 at The Legend at Brandybrook in Wales, just outside of Waukesha. For the first time, this second annual event will be open to the public.
"This is the only opportunity any of us will have to watch these PGA Tour players in our state this year," said Jack Gaudion, event board member and co-owner of The Legend Clubs."So please come out and enjoy their amazing shotmaking, but also help us raise money for several very worthy causes including The First Tee of Milwaukee County, The Folds of Honor Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project and Birdies for the Brave.
"Last year, the event raised over $200,000 in proceeds and in-kind donations for these worthy causes, and our goal is $300,000 this year, so we really need the folks of Wisconsin to come out to watch these amazing professionals in action and support our cause."
Along with the four very successful PGA Tour professionals from Wisconsin, spectators will have the opportunity to be entertained by PGA Tour players like Tom Pernice, Jr. (a multiple winner on the PGA Tour), Tommy "Two Gloves" Gainey, Duffy Waldorf, Joe Ogilvie, John Rollins and Ken Duke (six top tens this year) to name only a few.
And, special guest, Golf Channel's David Feherty will be on the first tee to introduce the players in his unique and absolutely hilarious style.
"There are no ropes at our event," saidJoe Stadler, event board member and executive director of the Wisconsin PGA. "So you can literally walk the fairways with these great players. You can't do that at a PGA Tour event."
Heroes for Kids is a two-day, PGA Tour/celebrity pro-am charity golf event to be held July 29–30 at The Legend at Brandybrook in Wales.
The event consists of 18-holes of golf on Sunday, the 29 (with celebrities, professional athletes and local PGA professionals), a Sunday night Gala & Auction (featuring a blind draw for PGA Tour pairings), and 18-holes on Monday, the 30th with PGA Tour professionals.
