Championship Golf for Worthy Causes: A Win-Win for Charities and Fans

The American Family Insurance Championship’s return to Madison’s University Ridge Golf Course, June 19-25, offers golf fans a great opportunity to watch pros from across the PGA Champions tour compete on one of the Midwest’s premier courses. The tournament also provides a number of charities throughout the region with much needed support and donations.

Proceeds from last year’s event resulted in $1,089,000 in donations to 33 local charities, and this year’s event promises to deliver – and possibly surpass – what was a banner year for giving to these local organizations.
