Making a difference
The Championship is an important stop on the PGA TOUR Champions schedule, and significantly benefits our local communities and non-profits.
Through our partnership with the Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation, the 2016 and 2017 championships raised more than $2.7 million for charity, including the American Family Children’s Hospital (AFCH) and many others. See how we will help local charities like REACH-A-Child this year.
Steve Stricker is a brand ambassador for AmFam along with serving as a tournament host and player. He was captain of the 2017 U.S. President’s Cup Team and is a potential candidate for captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 2020 which will be held in Wisconsin.
