The IHYC Golf Classic is not your average tournament – golfers will have a fun and interactive experience to learn about Iowa Homeless Youth Centers and the youth we serve. For the first time in 2017, golfers will get the chance to feel what it’s like to be homeless, while playing 18 holes at Copper Creek Golf Club. After the tournament, awards and prizes will be given at lunch in the clubhouse. Formerly known as the “Stand Up Guys Golf Classic,” this annual tournament has been supporting IHYC for over a decade. While the name has changed, the cause has stayed the same. In honor of the Stand Up Guys’ long-time support of Iowa Homeless Youth Centers, we will recognize an outstanding individual with the “Stand Up Award.”

Brit Floyd @ Des Moines Civic Center | Des Moines | Iowa | United States

The hotly anticipated rock event of the year returns, as Brit Floyd brings the music of Pink Floyd to life once again with its lavish new stage show, ‘Pink Floyd Immersion World Tour 2017’. The spectacle of a Pink Floyd concert experience is truly recaptured in high-definition sound, and with a stunning million dollar light show and state of the art video design.
As well as performing the favourite moments from The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Wall and The Division Bell, Brit Floyd will also pay special tribute to the Animals album, in its 40th anniversary year, with a show stopping rendition of ‘Dogs’, as well as a host of other Pink Floyd musical gems. The Brit Floyd show has truly become a phenomenon, widely regarded as the world’s greatest live tribute to Pink Floyd. Faithfully recreating the scale and pomp of the final 1994 Division Bell tour, complete with circle screen and multiple moving light design, lasers, inflatables and theatrics, a Brit Floyd show really is as close as fans will ever get to experiencing the magnificence of a Pink Floyd show live. More than a tribute, it’s as good as they say. Believe the hype and don’t miss it! The new ‘Pink Floyd Immersion’ show promises to be Brit Floyd’s most ambitious and best production yet.
