“The Lot Parties have helped extend the fun for fans after the tournament each day, all while raising much-needed funds for local charities. Compass Consulting Group’s support will further that mission and elevate the impact on these great local causes.”
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla (PRWEB) May 01, 2015
Compass Consulting Group is proud to announce it will be the presenting sponsor of this year’s Lot Parties, the Official Benefit After Parties of THE PLAYERS Championship.
In 2012, the tournament unveiled “The Lot,” a hospitality structure located outside the Nicklaus Gate in General Parking off of CR210, which hosts parties following the end of play to extend the fun for fans, and, in the process, raise money for great local causes. Entrance to these events requires an additional ticket, separate from spectator tickets to the golf tournament, with all proceeds going to the charitable organization hosting the party.
“We are very excited that Compass Consulting Group has agreed to become the presenting sponsor of The Lot Parties,” said Jared Rice, PGA TOUR senior director of sales, THE PLAYERS Championship. “The Lot Parties have helped extend the fun for fans after the tournament each day, all while raising much-needed funds for local charities. Compass Consulting Group’s support will further that mission and elevate the impact on these great local causes.”
“Compass Consulting Group is tremendously honored to present The Lot Parties,” said Scott C. Snyder, president of Compass Consulting Group. “We believe strongly in these programs and have seen their efforts make a huge difference in the lives of children and our veterans. As a Jacksonville-based company, it’s important to us to give back and support our local community. We started sponsoring The Lot Parties several years ago, and this year we wanted to strengthen our commitment by supporting the entire four-night series. The parties are a great way to have fun after the day’s activities and raise money for a good cause. We’re extremely proud to be part of these events.”
