Great news for Delaware Valley professional golf fans. The ShopRite LPGA event, which brings to the area the top female professional golfers in the world, has secured financial stability with a new deal with Acer.
The ShopRite LPGA Classic Presented by Acer see the computer company acting as title sponsor for at least three more years. Acer has been a major sponsor of the event, and the new deal will keep that partnering intact.
Tournament Director Leela Narang loves that partnership, especially because it continues Acer's involvement in the event, held annually at the Stockton Seaview Resort in Galloway Township.
"Acer has been an important partner and we could not be more pleased the company will continue to help us bring world-class sports to South Jersey and the Delaware Valley," said Narang. "Our event makes a huge economic and charitable impact on the region as Acer, ShopRite and more than 400 other companies support the event."
In-Kyung Kim is expected to defend the crown she won last summer over Seaview's historic Bay Course, a Donald Ross design. The event annually attracts the top LPGA professionals, and recently two-time champion Anna Nordqvist remarked she never wants to miss the event, which will be played June 8-10.
