When the Nationwide Tour announced its plan for Jacksonville to host a tournament during the end of the season stretch run, local family wealth management firm Legacy Trust saw an opportunity to sponsor. This morning it was announced by Nationwide Tour President Bill Calfee that Legacy Trust Family Wealth Offices will be the Official Family Wealth Management Firm of the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open presented by Planters. The event is being held October 21-24 on Dye’s Valley Course at the TPC Sawgrass.
Kristin McLauchlan Chairman & CEO of Legacy Trust stated, “The most compelling reason for signing on with the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open was its commitment to area charities with 100% of all ticket sales goes directly to local non-profit organizations. Part of what we do is help our clients develop their charitable giving plans, and our philosophy is that we should take a leadership role in the community from a corporate giving perspective.” McLauchlan continued, “It is our responsibility to support cultural and sporting events that can help our community prosper. The Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open presented by Planters is a big event that we believe will do great things for our community and we want to be a part of that at the ground level.”
