A Big Thank You to Our Golf Tournament Players, Volunteers & Sponsors!

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the 2nd Annual Mike Ohge Memorial Golf Tournament!

NBA officials to wear No. 57 patch during Finals

NBA referees officiating the Finals will wear number 57 on their jerseys to recognize NBA referee Greg Willard who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The gesture of support for Greg and his family was arranged in cooperation with the NBA.

Greg Willard has been an NBA referee for 24 seasons and has officiated over 1,500 regular season games, 120 playoff games and has been officiating in The Finals since the 2009-2010 season. “Greg’s professionalism and integrity have made him a role model within the NBA community,” said NBRA General Counsel Lee Seham. “We want him and his family to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them.”

Dan dedicated his life to journalism, education and the pursuit of the democratic debate. He received his bachelors and masters degrees in Journalism from Northwestern University and went on to obtain his Doctorate in Journalism from the University of Missouri.
