Another local event is off due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The 2020 AmFam Championship has been canceled for May 30-June 7 at University Ridge. American Family Insurance will be contributing $2.8 million to charity, even with the event canceled this year.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and in collaboration with the PGA TOUR Champions, we have made the decision to cancel the American Family Insurance Championship scheduled for May 30-June 7. The cancellation of all events associated with championship week include tournament competition, UW Carbone’s Race for Research, and the concert featuring Little Big Town and the BoDeans.
American Family Insurance will be reallocating its tournament title sponsorship investment, along with the combination of financial resources within the Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation, to make direct donations to American Family Children’s Hospital/UW Hospitals and other charitable organizations, including those providing COVID-19 relief.
The Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation will immediately distribute $2.8 million to charity organizations, including $1 million to the American Family Children’s Hospital/UW Hospitals and $800,000 to southcentral and southeastern Wisconsin non-profit organizations the Foundation supported in 2019. The remaining $1 million will be donated to COVID-19 relief efforts in Wisconsin.
