Manulife extends sponsorship of LPGA tournament
Manulife Financial has extended its title sponsorship of the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic for two additional years. The annual golf tournament takes place near Waterloo, ON, where Manulife has its Canadian headquarters. The company became title sponsor of the event two years ago. The Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, which will take place from June 4 to 8, is owned by Sports Properties International.
"We are thrilled to bring this world-class event to Waterloo region," said Marianne Harrison, president and CEO of Manulife Canada. "The community's support of the tournament has been outstanding, bringing in over 60,000 spectators each year and the support of over 1,000 dedicated volunteers. Fans have also been treated to exciting golf with two sudden death playoffs."
