Actor Alfonso Ribeiro is known for a lot of roles - his work on the sitcom “Silver Spoons, ” his win on season 19 of “Dancing with the Stars” and he currently hosts “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” - but he is most-known for his role as Carlton Banks on the hit TV show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
He's coming to Iowa to play in The Principal Charity Classic®, presented by Wells Fargo.
Turns out that Ribeiro is a passionate golf fan and brand ambassador of the PGA TOUR Champions. He'll play in the Prairie Meadows Pro-Am on Wednesday, June 6, at the Wakonda Club in Des Moines.
A low-handicap golfer, Ribeiro is a frequent celebrity Pro-Am participant. This year marks his first appearance at the Principal Charity Classic – but it is NOT his first trip to the state. Ribeiro’s wife, Angela (Unkrich) Ribeiro, is a native of Swedesburg, Iowa.
The pro-am is one of many events that will occur from June 5 - 10 at the classic in Des Moines. Here's the full details.
I've attended the event in the past and my favorite spot is at the 18th hole. Have you been there? It's amazing to see folks who are THE BEST at golf do their thing LIVE.
