NOW: 21st annual Fellowship Open returns to full swing

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Fellowship Open is a charity golf event that's helped youth groups in Milwaukee for more than two decades. CBS 58's Mike Strehlow was there at Silver Spring Golf Club with the honorees on Friday, Aug. 20.

Past honorees of the event include Hank Aaron, Oscar Robertson, Bud Selig, and more. During last year's virtual event, CBS 58 met Milwaukee Bucks legend Sidney Moncrief. This year's Legends Award honoree is Green Bay Packers legend LeRoy Butler. 

"This is what athletes are supposed to be doing. So when people honor you, it's like...aren't we supposed to be doing this? But I'm very fortunate and I am very happy," Butler said. 

Dee Robinson is this year's Fellowship Open National Civic Leadership honoree. She's a successful entrepreneur and founder of a concessions management firm, "Robinson Hill."  

Both Dee and LeRoy are not only proven winners in sports and business but have excelled in helping young people succeed. In fact, LeRoy's Butler vs, Bullying campaign is now in its third year. The initiative has reached more than 100,000 students in 70 schools. 

Bullied himself as a child, LeRoy encourages kids to open up about the problem and provide ways for them to become leaders not followers.
