FROM OUR TOURNAMENT SPONSORS

PINNACLE BANK

Pinnacle Bank is a community bank that was founded by George and Tom Dinsdale in Palmer, Nebraska, in 1938. Roy and Jack, George’s sons, began to expand in 1959, when they purchased a second bank in Neligh. Roy and Jack continued to expand and run the bank for several years before the next generation continued the legacy.

Roy stays involved to this day and serves on several boards. Today, Pinnacle Bank provides services for a broad range of commercial, individual and agricultural customers. Throughout the communities it serves, it is known for strength, stability, service and values. It takes care of its customers by focusing on building genuine relationships.

Pinnacle Bank has continued to grow under the Dinsdale family and in the establishment of Pinnacle Bancorp. Over the years, Pinnacle Bancorp has developed into an $11.4 billion holding company with 150 community banks in seven states, including 64 locations across Nebraska in 36 communities. The second, third and fourth generations of Dinsdales have active roles in Pinnacle Bancorp. Sid Dinsdale, with the company since 1978, is the chairman of Pinnacle Bancorp, and Lynn Marchese is the Senior Vice President of Marketing. Helping the Dinsdales lead the company are Mark Hesser, President of Pinnacle Bancorp, and Marc Hock, Executive Vice President of Pinnacle Bancorp.

Pinnacle Bank, a subsidiary of Pinnacle Bancorp, is dedicated to its customers, as well as the communities where its customers and employees live and work. It gives back by donating to various local causes and sponsoring special events. And its employees share this community spirit by volunteering their time, as well.

“We are always looking for ways to help our communities and be a good neighbor,” Hock said. “Whether it’s giving time to a local event, supporting a project in town or donating to a charity, we make it a point to encourage each bank and each employee to be involved.”

Pinnacle Bank was presented with a new opportunity in 2016 to support the community with the Pinnacle Bank Championship. This major event will bring the PGA TOUR back to Omaha for its third year, July 15 to 21 at The Club at Indian Creek. Support Nebraska Inc., a 501(c)(3) foundation developed exclusively in conjunction with the event, will manage and operate the Pinnacle Bank Championship as the tournament host organization, with net proceeds from the event benefiting local charities. Brad Strittmatter, CEO of Olsson, serves as president of Support Nebraska. Other board members are Matt Dinsdale, Marc Hock, David Honnens, Jeff Jorth, Nick Kelley, Jim Nedrow and Chris Wendlandt.

Support Nebraska donated $25,000 to the TeamMates Mentoring Program in its inaugural year, 2017, and $40,000 in 2018. In 2019, Support Nebraska would like to be able to donate more to TeamMates with net proceeds from ticket sales and event sponsorships.

Pinnacle Bank is proud to be part of bringing professional golf back to Omaha and to carry on its tradition of community involvement through charitable giving and local economic support.

CHEVY DEALERS

Fifteen local Chevrolet dealers in the Omaha and Lincoln areas are proud to support the Pinnacle Bank Championship. Collectively, they work together to further the Chevy brand in the region. They are active with many events that help the community in charitable aspects.

TEAMMATES

TeamMates Mentoring Program aims to impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential. TeamMates strives to be the gold standard for school-based mentoring through its values of commitment to youth, safety, integrity, trust and inclusion. As a school-based mentoring program, TeamMates makes its program easily accessible for all youth by meeting at a school during school hours and during the school year. All youth can benefit from a mentoring relationship. Whether in a formal relationship such as TeamMates or an informal relationship such as a neighbor or relative, everyone needs a positive role model to provide guidance and wisdom. The role of a mentor is to identify the strengths and talents of a student.

A youth in the TeamMates Mentoring Program is called a mentee. They are identified for their strengths and have expressed a desire to have a mentor. A mentor’s role is to provide additional support and encouragement to the mentee. Students may self-nominate or a parent or teacher may nominate a young person to have a mentor. Students in Grades 3 through 12 are eligible. TeamMates mentees consistently maintain or improve their grades, attendance and behavior based on data collected through partnerships with local school districts. There is a positive correlation between students looking forward to seeing their mentors and overall levels of hope, engagement and well-being.

TeamMates is always looking for adult volunteers (mentors) who want to build a positive relationship with a student in order to help them reach their full potential. You can start mentoring at any time during the school year. By volunteering just one time a week, mentors build a friendship with the student and provide support, encouragement and guidance. Mentors must be 18 or older and have a high school degree or GED equivalent. During weekly meetings, mentors focus on the strengths of youth and let youth take the lead in determining activities. Some matches play board games while others eat lunch, talk, work on a craft or go to the school gym. Mentors often report that they believe they have received much more from the mentoring relationship than they have given.

To sign up as a mentor, visit teammates.org and complete the application. Once your application has been  approved, mentors start training and upon completion get to meet their mentees. It is TeamMates’ hope that by 2020, its program will have reached more than 12,000 youths. To help it meet this goal, please sign up to become a mentor or contact TeamMates at 877-531-8326.
