PGA Tour Zurich Classic Hosting Louisiana Forward Economic Summit
Published April 26, 2011
Zurich Senior VP Mark Toohey said the insurance giant’s business is responding to catastrophes and that Zurich has seen its role as the tournament’s title sponsor expand to help the New Orleans community get back on its feet. Zurich worked with the tournament to start the economic summit two years ago in order to discuss the recovery from Hurricane Katrina, and “it’s become a great way to talk about the charitable pieces around the tournament,” Toohey said. Zurich and Fore!Kids have raised more than $8M since '05, while also supporting the St. Bernard Project to rebuild homes damaged or destroyed by Katrina.
