In 2008, Stater Bros. Markets' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jack H. Brown, partnered with long-time friend and PGA Champions Tour Pro Dave Stockton to launch a vision that has helped countless charities, causes and community members.  This year's "Heroes Challenge" will bring together six (6) Medal of Honor Recipients and seventeen (17) of local legend Dave Stockton's PGA Tour friends.

New to the tournament this year is 2008 RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion, Sr. Division Dan Boever, who is known for entertaining the crowd with his trick shots.  Other golf notables will include Olin Browne, Hall-of-Fame Golfer Donna Caponi-Byrnes, Morgan Pressel, Scott Simpson, D.A. Weibring, and Mark Wiebe.

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.
