Stater Bros. Charities Dave Stockton Heroes Challenge has become the largest charity golf event in the region. Each year the event hosts notable Tour players such as John Cook, Gary McCord, Olin Browne and Morgan Pressel and World Golf Hall of Fame players Lee Trevino, Donna Caponi, Larry Nelson and Hubert Green.
The Heroes Challenge is a closed event limited to several players who compete for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and highest grossing team and consists of Stockton’s PGA Tour friends, Medal of Honor recipients, and celebrities who all come out for a great game of golf.
In 2008, Stater Bros. Markets’ Executive Chairman, Jack H. Brown, partnered with longtime friend and PGA Champions Tour Pros, Dave Stockton to launch this vision that, through its fundraising efforts, has helped countless charities, causes and community members.
Both Brown and Stockton were born and raised in San Bernardino, California and have been proud residents of the Inland Empire for most of their lives. Because of their close ties to the community, Brown and Stockton feel a great desire to give back to the Inland Empire.
