Sun SafeTee announces plans to participate in the 2013 PGA Expo

DEL MAR, Calif. -- The Sun SafeTee Program, the leader in sun protection education for golfers, announced that Sun SafeTee will be part of the 2013 PGA Expo, August 19-21, in Las Vegas, NV.

"We truly appreciate the support of PGA Golf Exhibitions and the platform of the PGA Expo to help provide our information to attending golf industry professionals," said Mark Wishner, President of Sun SafeTee. "Sun SafeTee is looking forward to being a part of this year's PGA Expo and in particular we are excited to be part of Demo Night".

Sun SafeTee will participate as a vendor in the 2013 PGA Expo Demo Night on Monday, Aug. 19, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m., at the TaylorMade Golf Experience, just off The Strip in Las Vegas. The company will also connect with attending PGA Professionals, golf buyers and industry leaders on the Show floor in Booth #102 of the PGA Expo, Aug. 20-21, in the Grand Ballroom of the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino.

This year over 3 million skin cancers will be diagnosed in the United States and 12,000 people will die from melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. According to Wishner, since golfers spend a significant amount of time in the sun they have a higher risk of developing skin cancer than the general population.

"By participating in the PGA Expo, we get the opportunity to meet with golf professionals who earn their living in the sun. It is very satisfying to be able to share our program with the members of The PGA of America and the golf industry", Wishner added.
