Nate Pokrass, Foundation and Tournament Director of the American Family/Steve Stricker Golf Tournament was our guest.  Nate gave an overview of the planning for this tournament that will occur June 20-26, 2016 at the University Ridge Golf Course.  This event is attracting local and national attention.  The tournament is for pro golfers aged 50 and older and will  include many well known names.  This is also a charitable event with the proceeds to benefit the American Family Children's Hospital and several additional local non profits.  The Golf Channel will televise the event which will include  a youth clinic, player hospital visits and a hospitality reception before the tournament begins on the 24th. Additional activities are being planned and the goal is to make this an annual event.  For more information, go to and
