The Vince Lombardi Golf Classic: June 5-6 at North Hills CC

The name Vince Lombardi is synonymous with a winning tradition, and a steadfast dedication to excellence and integrity. When the greatest head coach in the history of the National Football League was diagnosed with cancer 45 years ago, the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation was founded to create awareness and help raise money for leading edge cancer research and compassionate care at the Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinics located throughout Eastern Wisconsin.

In addition to being a fantastic cause, the Lombardi Golf Outing is one heck of a great time! Every year celebrities flock to my home club of North Hills Country Club in Menomonee Falls to show their support and raise funds for the cause, and this year will be no exception. Joining for the 45th annual event on June 5-6 will be:

  • Jared Abbrederis
  • Morten Andersen
  • Jim Bakken
  • Zeke Bratkowski
  • Willie Buchanon
  • Mark Chmura
  • Paul Coffman
  • Mason Crosby (Event Co-Chair)
  • Lynn Dickey
  • Gary Ellerson

While Friday is a closed event, the course is open for spectators on Saturday for a $10 donation. Entrance includes a celebrity souvenir program and all proceeds benefit the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation.

The Lombardi Golf Outing is one of the longest running two-day charity golf events in the country, and always draws a great crowd to a beautiful golf course:
