General Information




Welcome to the Brown County Children’s Charity Golf Classic Website!

The Brown County Children’s Charity Golf Classic got its start in 2004 as part of a condition in a 2003 lease agreement with the Green Bay Packers and their use of Nitschke Field as a football practice field “on an annual basis at a mutually convenient time and place the Packers will provide meaningful participation in a fundraising event underwritten, planned and operated by Brown County (such as a golf tournament at Brown County Golf Course). All net proceeds are to be directed towards children’s services as determined by Brown County.”

The annual Children’s Charity Golf Classic helps make great programs happen by touching the lives of over 5,000 children in Brown County! To date over $300,000 has been raised for needy children in our area!!!

CASA of Brown County

Through CASA, we are helping the most vulnerable children, giving them a voice and hope for a better future. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Brown County provides trained volunteers to represent the voices of abused and neglected children in court. CASA volunteer Advocates provide close, consistent, one-on-one support to the children they are assigned, and also provide the court with detailed reports to help assure those children safe and permanent homes.


PALS Program

The Pal's Program is a service of Brown County Human Services Department. The Pal's program matches an assigned mentor or a couple to spend time in recreational or learning activities with a child age 3 or older from a family that has been or is currently involved in the Child Protective Services Area. Volunteer mentors help the child from a single-parents family adjust to the separation oor loss of a parent, enhance self-esteem and confidence, and learn new skills. Matches are based on compatibility, are reviewed annually, and can continue for as long as both partners are interested until the youth is age eighteen.

Jack Washington Wonderful World Fund

The mission of the Jack Washington Wonderful World Fund is to help homeless and indigent youth (Kindergarten through 12th grade) by providing resources for hope, opportunity and success. Because the Jack Washington Wonderful World Fund donation is unrestricted, many needs that can’t be met by Federal and State money can be met using donations. Over 500 students benefit from this program every year.

N.E.W. Foster and Adoptive Parent Association

N.E.W. Foster & Adoptive Parent Association was established to assist foster and adoptive families, together with children in their homes – whether placed or born into them whose mission is to assist families who have made the choice to foster and/or adopt children in the Brown County area. Funds received from this event will be used for scholarships for post-secondary education.

Community Partnership for Children

The Community Partnership for Children initiative’s goal is to ensure that all children in Brown County are safe, healthy and enter school prepared to learn. This is being accomplished through identifying families’ needs at the hospital, agencies working better together and ultimately creating a prevention-based, coordinated System of Care for children of all ages. End results will be stronger families, thriving children, and over the long term, an improved future workforce and economy.


Child Advocacy Center

The Child Advocacy Center is a child-focused, facility based program where all community agencies involved with child abuse cases work together to meet the needs of the victim and their family. The caring and specialized staff of this center help victims heal while also assisting in the investigation and prosecution of their case. Ongoing therapy is also provided for as long as it is needed.

Youth Homeless Funding Provided to Schools

Five school districts within Brown County have received funding to help with the purchase of needed items; activity fees, or fund programs that would not be covered elsewhere. Funds also went to the Transitional Living Program at Family Services to assist homeless youth in accomplishing goals and reaching self-sufficiency.

Positive Action Prevention Program

Brought training to county employees and gave them skills to implement this program at Brown County Shelter Care. Shelter Care staff began conducting Positive Action classes in January 2008 and held 283 classes throughout the year for a total enrollment of 1,267. Positive action addresses making choices, thinking differently and identifying emotions. Ages of Positive Action participants ranged from 11-17 years old. Participants have reported high satisfaction with the program – the average Positive Action class was rated 4.0 on a 5 point scale with 85% indicating the lessons were helpful and valuable in making everyday choices.

Established AODA and Resource Library for Clients

A resource library for clients was established by purchasing various brochures, books and videos to be loaned out to clients. Produced a film titled “Recovery Happens” which tells the story of 5 Brown County citizens who were able to fight alcoholism, get the help needed, and hot they did it and which resources were used. 500 copies were distributed to middle and high schools within the County in addition to copies distributed to all treatment providers, probation officers and mental health agencies.

Save a Life Tour

Included a “state of the art” drunk driving prevention program using an interactive driving simulator for young people to experience firsthand how alcohol impairs driving skills. This was set up at Bay Park Square Mall over a two-day time period and had participation of over 300 people. In addition, a model prevention program – Parenting Wisely for Juvenile Court Services was purchased to assist parents involved in that program.
