The Enselein Family

"NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.

The Nickel Open is a proud supporter of NAMI and is honored to be able to partner with them through this event.

Andy Enselein was born on September 26, 1984. He was an artist, concert goer, barfoot dancer, beer drinker, dog lover, beard enthusiast, dirty hippie, bicycle rider, son, brother and friend to all. After over a decade of battling with depression, Andy lost his life to suicide in October 2017. Andy lived his life in black and white. When things were amazing, they couldn't be better. When things were hard, he couldn't imaging how they could ever be good again. To honor his life and the joy he lived with when he wasn't battling the demons in his mind, we are happy to partner with the Nickel Open, The DanO Fund and NAMI Minnesota for the Soulshine Bags Tournament. We hope that every dollar raised and every person spoken to helps to provide help and comfort to anyone battling their own demons.

Soulshine; it's better than sunshine, better than moonshine and dam sure better than rain. Let your soulshine.
