7TH ANNUAL DAVEY NELSON CELEBRITY GOLF TOURNAMENT SET FOR JUNE 29

On Monday, June 29, Brewers Director of Alumni Relations and FOX Sports Wisconsin Broadcaster Dave Nelson will host his seventh annual Davey Nelson Celebrity Golf Tournament at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Kohler, Wisconsin.

This event is always a blast, so I encourage you to sign up! Click here to read last year’s event recap.

The Tournament will begin at 10:30 a.m. on the Irish Course at Whistling Straits and will be followed by a cocktail reception, silent as well as live auctions, and dinner.

All teams in the tournament will be comprised of a five-person group, and play will consist of a scramble format with team prizes awarded to the top finishers. Registrations are being accepted as a foursome and a celebrity golfer will be paired with each group to make up the five person team. Registration fees are $2,700 per foursome. A golf clinic led by American Club golf pros and a putting contest will take place at 9:00 a.m., and a light breakfast will be served prior to the start of the tournament. The tournament is limited to 30 foursomes. For those who do not care to golf, tickets to Monday night’s reception are available for $150 per person.

An additional preview event is scheduled for Sunday, June 28, consisting of a golf experience at Whistling Straits, Straits Course followed by a cocktail reception and dinner at the Championship Locker Room Terrace. This is an especially cool opportunity, this year more than others, as the Straits Course is the site of the 2015 PGA Championship, which will take place this August. Rates for the preview event are $6,400, which also includes registration for Monday’s event.

Proceeds will benefit Open Arms Home for Children in South Africa and Brewers Community Foundation. For sponsorship opportunities, additional information or to sign up for this memorable golfing experience, visit brewers.com/Davey or contact Meredith Malone at meredith.malone@brewers.com or (414) 902-4501.

Open Arms Home for Children is a non-profit organization that provides shelter, clothing, protection and basic healthcare for what is now home to many children orphaned due to the AIDS epidemic in South Africa. Davey Nelson has served as Board Director for the organization for over four years.
