Who We are. Our mission.

Collage

For over 43 years, the Tapemark Charity Pro-Am has been improving the lives of people living with developmental disabilities. The tournament was founded by two visionary men, Bob Klas Sr and Pat Cody Sr, who saw an opportunity to support those living with disabilities by establishing unique golf events based on competition and camaraderie. The Tapemark Men's and Women's Golf Tournaments, the longest-running charity events of their kind in the Midwest, are now fixtures in the Minnesota golf landscape. With the support of thousands of companies and individuals, we've raised and donated more than $6.9 million to non-profit agencies serving people with disabilities and their families. With your help, we work towards a day when all Minnesotans, regardless of ability, will live, work, and play in their own community with dignity, hope, and respect.
