Teams can still register for the 2019 B. Bruce Krier Angel Golf Spectacular, a fundraising event for the Angel On My Shoulder program, set for this Friday, June 7, at St. Germain Golf Club with three special guests. 

The golf tournament will be a scramble format with a shotgun start about 9:30 a.m., with celebrity guests including former Green Bay Packers Gilbert Brown, William Henderson and Jerry Kramer, according to Lolly Rose, founder of Angel On My Shoulder and Golf Spectacular. 

A reception, dinner and auctions will follow at the Whitetail Inn, including a social hour with hors d’oeuvres, dinner, awards, a silent auction and a live auction. Kramer will be the guest speaker at the dinner Saturday evening.

“The B. Bruce Krier Angel On My Shoulder Golf Spectacular was established in 1996 as the major fundraiser for our programs. It has become an event that’s in a class of its own. The beautiful St. Germain Golf Club with its bent grass greens and its spectacular forest setting is home for our tournament,” said Rose.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the many causes championed by Angel On My Shoulder to improve the quality of life of those living with or affected by cancer. Angel On My Shoulder is a registered nonprofit cancer support foundation and donations are tax deductible. 

Special guests at the Golf Spectacular will include Brown, Henderson and Kramer, all long-time fan favorites with the Green Bay Packers.

A nose tackle who played for the Green Bay Packers from 1993-’99 and 2001-’03), Brown played 125 Packers games (103 starts), recording 292 tackles (186 solo) and seven sacks. Nicknamed “The Gravedigger” in honor of his celebratory dance following a thunderous tackle, Brown played in 15 Packers playoff games. He was a major contributor on strong defenses during the mid-1990s. His best season was 1996, when Green Bay won Super Bowl XXXI. 

Henderson played fullback for 12 seasons for the Green Bay Packers, with whom he won Super Bowl XXXI against the New England Patriots. Henderson was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 1995, and has played every season in his career with the Packers. Henderson was durable and effective for the Packers, solidifying the team at fullback after moving into the starting role in 1996. Nine times in his first 11 seasons he played in all 16 games. He was selected for the 2004 Pro Bowl. His consistent play, especially in his later years, had many Packer players and fans calling him “Old Reliable.”

Kramer played 11 years for the Green and Gold as an offensive lineman from 1958 to 1968. He was an integral part of the famous Packers sweep, a signature play in which both guards rapidly pull out from their normal positions and lead block for the running back going around the end. Kramer was an All-Pro five times, and a member of the NFL’s 50th anniversary team in 1969. Before his election into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018 at age 82, Kramer was noted for being a finalist for the Hall 10 times without being voted in.
