The St. Mary's General Hospital Foundation Charity Pro-Am is to be the kickoff event on July 8 for the 2013 Manulife Financial LPGA Classic in Waterloo and will provide golfers with the opportunity to play alongside LPGA Tour professionals at Grey Silo Golf Course under tournament conditions.
There are only 15 foursomes available to purchase, so this will truly be a unique opportunity.
As the official charity partner of the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, proceeds will be used to establish the new arrhythmia program for heart health at St. Mary's General Hospital.
"We are excited this world-class golf tournament will once again benefit one of our community's most important local charities," said Nicole Boivin, chief branding and communications officer at Manulife Financial. "We chose St. Mary's as our charity partner because of their strong local roots, commitment to volunteerism and their work to help improve the quality of life and health of residents in the Region. This charity pro-am is a great way to help kick start the tournament and support St. Mary's."
The day will begin with breakfast in the clubhouse and the announcement of team pairings. Following the announcement there will be a quick warm-up session before a shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. The day concludes with an exclusive luncheon and cocktail reception in the clubhouse.
Individual pro-am participants will receive an exclusive package including breakfast, on-course hospitality, luncheon and cocktail reception, gift package, and four any-day tournament passes for the tournament. Pricing per person is $1,500.
Brittany Lang of the U.S. won the 2012 Manulife Financial LPGA Classic after making birdie on the par‐5 18th hole three straight times in a four person playoff to earn $195,000.
