The charity event formerly known as the
Backyard Bash has been re-branded as He-
roes for Kids in its second year of operation.
The event, the only pro-am featuring
Wisconsin’s five PGA Tour players – Steve
Stricker, Mark Wilson, Jerry Kelly, J.P. Hayes
and Skip Kendall – will be held July 29-30 at
the Legend at Brandybrook in Wales.
The name change was made to more ac-
curately reflect the event’s twin purposes –
to raise money and awareness for charities
benefitting the armed forces of the United
States and to increase the number of chil-
dren exposed to golf. Donations and pro-
ceeds will go to the Folds of Honor
Foundation, the Wounded Warrior Project
and The First Tee of Milwaukee County.
In its first year and under its former name,
the outing generated more than $270,000.
