“DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., February, 3, 2015- The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) announced today that Volunteers of America, the national, nonprofit organization, will serve as the title sponsor for the Tour’s stop in North Texas. The Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout will be held April 27-May 3, 2015, and will be played at Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, Texas, for the third consecutive year.” Courtesy of LPGA Press Release
Yes, that is right. The North Texas LPGA Shootout has a Title Sponsor. So what is the big deal?
Here’s the Deal
The big deal is not just that one of the best LPGA events on the schedule has a title sponsor but more importantly who the sponsor is and what they represent.
The Volunteers of America “… organization is dedicated to helping those in need live healthy, safe and productive lives. Through hundreds of human service programs, including housing and health care, Volunteers of America helps more than 2 million people in over 400 communities.”
Having a title sponsor helps not just the survivability of the event but also makes an impact on the local community where the event is held through the boost to the area’s economy as well the fundraising for charity.
