The 35 companies who sponsored the event received recognition for supporting this inaugural golf tournament via the prominent display of their logos on banners, on swag, on tickets and the media coverage both before and after the event. President Nicki Upright said “ I could not be more delighted with the way our board members and committee worked together to make this event what it was. We have received nothing but praise of the event and already have companies securing their sponsorships for 2022”.
