Club Managers Association of America supports Caddy for a Cure

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -- Caddy For A Cure, Inc., announces the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) as an integral sponsor of its 7th annual fundraiser golf tournament, The Liberty Mutual Invitational benefiting Caddy For A Cure.

The objectives of the Association are to promote and advance friendly relations among persons connected with the management of clubs and other associations of similar character; to encourage the education and advancement of members; and to assist club officers and members, through their managers, to secure the utmost in efficient and successful operations. Funding for the sponsorship was made possible through CMAA's philanthropic arm, The Club Foundation. The Foundation's COO, Seth Gregg said "We are extremely excited to support Caddy For A Cure as they aim to broaden their impact on conquering this horrible disease."

Caddy For A Cure CEO and program founder Russ Holden said "We are very grateful for the support of the Club Manager's Association of America for this year's event. We're certain most of our guests, whether civilian or military, have been at a CMAA member-managed club, so it's wonderful to be able to show how they also support the game of golf through charitable support." He continued, "Although fundraising is our primary goal for the tournament, we're very proud to promote the excellent work done by the CMAA. They are an integral part to making the experience of member golf and club life enjoyable."
