Omaha architectural firm RDG Planning & Design is presenting the event; tournament cosponsors are consulting/engineering firms Thompson, Dreesen & Dorner and Farris Engineering. The Hawks Foundation will contribute a matching donation of up to $15,000. Last year’s tournament raised more than $28,000.

The Magis Free Clinic, located at the Siena Francis House, works with other organizations to provide acute care and follow-up, physical exams, lab tests, medications, specialty clinics and referrals. Medical students and physicians volunteer at the clinic, seeing about 20 patients each Saturday.
