LPGA, CHICK-FIL-A TEAM UP FOR FOSTER KIDS
Published November 18, 1994
The LPGA has announced that it will return to Atlanta in 1995 with Chick-fil-A as title sponsor of their Charity Championship -- to be held from April 17-23 and featuring a $500,000 purse. Chick-fil-A Chair Truett Cathy said tournament proceeds will benefit the WinShape Foster Care program, which provides student scholarships and foster care for over 70 children in seven homes. LPGA Commissioner Charles Mecham: "We are happy to be returning in partnership with Chick-fil-A, a hometown sponsor, to provide Atlanta with the very best in women's golf, while benefiting a worthy cause." A newly formed non-profit, Metro South Golf Charities, Inc., will produce the event. Chick-fil-A is one of the largest privately held restaurant chains and the third-largest fast-food chicken chain, with nearly 600 restaurants in 32 states and Canada (Chick-fil- A).
