Erstad Guest Speaker at Golf Event

New Nebraska Head Baseball Coach Darin Erstad will be the featured speaker at the Brenden Stai Charity Golf Classic on Friday, July 8, at HiMark Golf Course.

It will be one of Erstad's first public appearances since becoming Nebraska's head coach and recently hiring members of his coaching staff. The charity tournament, set for Saturday, July 9 at HiMark, will benefit the local ministry of Tiny Hands International and the organization's sex traffic prevention efforts that help save young girls “one life at a time”.

Tournament organizer Aaron Marshbanks said the tournament has drawn more than 100 golfers, but registration remains open for the four-person scramble event.

Cost for the event, which beings Saturday, July 9 at 10 a.m., is $150 per person and includes two tickets to the 6:30 p.m., Friday dinner party with live and silent auctions, plus lunch and beverages for the 10 a.m., shotgun start on Saturday. Carts and gift bags also are covered in the registration fee.

Cost is $50 for those who would like to attend Friday night's dinner only and hear Erstad speak.

Anyone interested in attending either event, or both, can register at or call the Tiny Hands organization at 402-601-4816.
