Shriners Hospitals for Children Extends PGA Tour Tournament Sponsorship in Las Vegas Through 2020
Shriners Hospitals for Children
, which has sponsored the PGA TOUR tournament in Las Vegas since 2008, has signed a three-year extension that carries its commitment to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open through 2020. 

“Shriners Hospitals for Children is an awe-inspiring organization that truly saves children’s lives,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan. “The PGA TOUR is honored to continue working with the Shriners to raise awareness of the wonderful work done at these hospitals.”

The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open will be held for the 35th time when it returns to TPC Summerlin the week of October 30-November 5, 2017.

“The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open provides tremendous media exposure and opportunities for our organizations, as well as a perfect setting for our Shriners to come together for fun and fellowship,” said Gary J. Bergenske, Imperial Potentate (CEO) of Shriners International, and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Shriners Hospitals for Children. “We are very pleased to continue our tradition of hosting a professional golf tournament in Las Vegas, and to continue our relationship with the PGA TOUR for another three years.”

The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open has become a valuable platform to share patients’ successes, and the amazing work and expertise of the health care system.

“Shriners Hospitals for Children strives to provide our unique brand of compassion and care to as many children as possible. The worldwide media exposure provided by the Shriners Hospitals for Children helps us reach many who might not otherwise learn about our health care system,” said Jerry G. Gantt, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Shriners Hospitals. “The Open also gives us an outstanding opportunity to share the stories of our patients in a powerful, visual way, clearly demonstrating our ability to impact and improve lives. We are extremely pleased to be part of the PGA TOUR, which provides these opportunities, through 2020.”

The PGA TOUR looks forward to working with the Shriners organizations for another three years.

“The Shriners have really grown their activation and patient involvement around the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open over the past several years, and it is exciting to see how they plan to further extend their patient activation around other PGA TOUR events in hospital markets,” said Brian Oliver, PGA TOUR Senior Vice President of Sponsorship and Partnership. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue working with this group.”

Rod Pampling is the defending champion of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, winning by two strokes over Brooks Koepka with a closing round of 65.

Shriners Hospitals for Children, a health care system of 22 hospitals that provides specialty pediatric care, conducts innovative research and offers outstanding medical teaching programs, was founded in 1922 by the Shriners fraternity, Shriners International.

Every year, Shriners Hospitals for Children provides care for thousands of kids with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate, in a family-centered environment, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. The health care system also provides medical educational opportunities and conducts research to improve the lives of children.
