|MILAN, IL — Group O announced today that it will again sponsor the Support our Troops hospitality tent at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, to be played February 9-15, 2015, in Pebble Beach, California.
“In addition to raising money for charity, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has a strong history of showing appreciation for our military,” said Gregg Ontiveros, Group O CEO. “Service members are invited to tend the pin at the 15th hole, caddy for celebrities and receive free tickets. The Support our Troops tent provides a place for invited military personnel to take a break and enjoy some hospitality.”
The tent will be open to invited military during the tournament days of Friday – Sunday, along the 15th fairway. Along with complimentary food and drinks, donated items are raffled off every day the tent is open. The 2015 tournament will mark the eighth year of the Support our Troops tent, the last four of which have been sponsored by Group O.
The event combines a traditional PGA TOUR tournament along with a four-day pro-am event. Amateurs are paired with a TOUR professional for the first three days of the tournament, with the top 25 teams making the cut for the final day. Past or expected celebrity amateurs have ranged from actors Bill Murray and Clint Eastwood to sports figures such as Wayne Gretzky and Peyton Manning — to musicians Justin Timberlake and Darius Rucker.
