Alfonso Ribeiro to play in 2018 Principal Charity Classic Pro-Am

The Principal Charity Classic®, presented by Wells Fargo, today announced actor and comedian Alfonso Ribeiro has joined the field for the 2018 Principal Charity Classic Pro-Am.

Ribeiro, a passionate golf fan and brand ambassador of the PGA TOUR Champions, will play in the Prairie Meadows Pro-Am on Wednesday, June 6, at historic Wakonda Club in Des Moines.

Ribeiro, 46, is perhaps best known for his role as Carlton Banks on the hit TV show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” as well as his work on the sitcom “Silver Spoons.” He won season 19 of “Dancing with the Stars” and currently hosts “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”

A low-handicap golfer, Ribeiro is a frequent celebrity Pro-Am participant. This year marks his first appearance at the Principal Charity Classic – but far from his first trip to the state. Ribeiro’s wife, Angela (Unkrich) Ribeiro, is a native of Swedesburg, Iowa.
