2022 Tom Dinsdale Auto NE Greats Golf Jamboree Presented By 1st State Bank

July 21-22nd, the 2-day event featured 25 celebrity golfers on the course at Riverside G.C. on the Friday after the evening event/auction/program featuring former Husker All-American Jason Peter and current Husker Garrett Nelson. A crowd of over 200 filled the ballroom to hear Jason tell stories of his family and playing days from the mid 1990’s.

The crowd was treated to a testimonial from former Hastings College T/F Standout Adam Driver and how the NE Greats came through for him.

The guests also bid on unique auction experiences including sky box passes with Trev Alberts and Larry the Cable Guy for a Husker Football home game, a behind-the-scenes chance to view a Husker Volleyball practice and a round of golf with Creighton Head Basketball Coach Greg McDermott and athletic director Bruce Rasmussen.

It was a record setting event for funds raised and awareness. Click on these links for stories on the event:

Injuries are often an inevitable reality for athletes competing at the collegiate level. During their careers, 90% of student-athletes report an athletics-related injury, according to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. However, for the athlete, the pain of an injury can go beyond being just physical and can cause lasting emotional and psychological impacts.
