Submitted by CA Technologies
CA, Inc. (Nasdaq: CA) today announced this year's participants in the CA Course Reporters program at the 2010 World Golf Championships – CA Championship, at Doral Golf Resort & Spa in Doral, Fla., taking place March 11-14, 2010. Additionally, CA has donated $50,000 to the TICKETS Fore CHARITY™ program. This donation brings CA's fundraising efforts to a total of nearly $4 million over the last three years.
"The First Tee works extremely hard in making a difference in the lives of young people, and through our partnership CA is happy to support their mission," said Bill Hughes, corporate senior vice president, Global Communications for CA. "The CA Course Reporters program is just one example of CA's commitment in giving back to the community. We also host golf clinics for Boys & Girls Club children and support of TICKETS Fore CHARITY to help local organizations improve communities."
Together with The First Tee, CA has invited three deserving participants from a pool of The First Tee's National Scholars to become the eyes and ears of the CA Championship for golf fans all around the world and share their unique experiences through their own blog at www.WorldGolfChampionships.com. Evan Myer (Pittsburgh, Pa.), Sara Diaz (San Antonio, Texas), and Dexter Turner (Aurora, Colo.) will explore every aspect of the tournament from meeting several members of the golf media for tips on covering a pro golf event, to interviewing the tournament director, to participating in volunteer jobs on the course.
The Course Reporters begin their coverage with the practice rounds and player press conferences on Wednesday, March 10, and will wrap up with the completion of the tournament on Sunday, March 14.
Beyond providing the experience of a lifetime for the three CA Course Reporters, CA will donate funds to help thousands through the TICKETS Fore CHARITY program. Entering its second year, TICKETS Fore CHARITY offers local non-profits a chance to promote the sale of tournament tickets to raise funds for their organizations. Furthering its mission to make a difference in the local community, CA has announced a separate donation of $50,000 to the organizations involved with TICKETS Fore CHARITY that raise the most money.
As in years past, CA will donate the proceeds of the tournament and drive various charitable endeavors to benefit young people throughout the South Florida community.
