TeamMates Charity Partner for Pinnacle Bank Championship Golf Tournament
TeamMates, the youth mentoring program founded by Tom and Nancy Osborne, has been selected as the charity partner for The Pinnacle Bank Championship (thepinnaclebankchampionship.com) golf tournament.
The organization, which encourages youth to graduate high school and pursue post-secondary education, will receive a check representing net proceeds from ticket sales and event sponsorships. An event to announce the partnership to the community was held on December 1st at the Pinnacle Bank offices at 180th and Dodge.
Support Nebraska, Inc., a 501(c)(3) foundation, was developed exclusively to manage and operate the Pinnacle Bank Championship as the tournament host organization. A board of community volunteers chaired by Brad Strittmatter selected TeamMates as the foundation’s charity partner for the tournament’s inaugural year.
2017 marks the return of the Web.com Tour to Omaha after a three-year absence. Pinnacle Bank struck a five-year agreement with the PGA TOUR earlier this year to bring the Tour stop back to Nebraska. The Web.com Tour’s prior events in Omaha were contested from 1996 to 2013 and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for community charities. The events also featured some of the Web.com Tour’s best community support, from volunteer efforts to fan attendance.
The upcoming tournament will be held from July 17th – 23rd at The Club at Indian Creek and features a purse of $600,000. The Web.com Tour’s prior events in Omaha produced champions such as PGA TOUR winners Bo Van Pelt, Johnson Wagner, Heath Slocum and Jason Gore.
