It’s still great golf for a great cause. It’s just happening a little later than usual this year.

The Principal Charity Classic, presented by Wells Fargo, has been rescheduled to September 1-6, 2020 at Wakonda Club in Des Moines.

The health and well-being of our participants and the community were top of mind as we established this new date. All tickets, volunteer registrations, and sponsorships for the original dates (May 26-31) remain valid for the rescheduled dates of September 1-6.

We remain committed to our philanthropic mission because together we help more than 130,000 Iowa kids each year. Take a moment to hear from Dan Houston, CEO of Principal®, on this signature event for the community.

We will see you in September. Until then, stay safe and be well.
