Additionally, participating youth will receive a group photo, a gift bag, an autographed scorecard, complimentary admission to The Pinnacle Bank Championship for family and a complimentary lunch. The sponsor participant will receive an official caddie bib.
The top-finishing team will receive $7,500; the second-place team receives $5,000; and the third-place team receives $2,500, in addition to the $5,000 that each team receives. The total potential charitable contribution to nonprofit children’s charities is $100,000.
“The Pinnacle Bank Championship understands the importance of today’s youth. They impact our kids through the game of golf and want to make sure all of these charities and the kids they support are impacted. It’s all about the kids, and The Pinnacle Bank Championship supports that wholeheartedly,” said The First Tee of Omaha Program Director Taylor Sidzyik.
Yard games and autographs from local collegiate student-athletes will start at 11 a.m. as well. Yard games will include a variety of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.
