Constellation has been a proud sponsor of the SENIOR PLAYERS Championship since 2003 and during that time, we’ve made more than $5 million in contributions to charitable organizations.
Building on last year’s success, the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship will continue in 2013 to positively impact worthy charities throughout greater Pittsburgh. At the tournament, our grants will help to support organizations and activities in the areas of education, youth development, affordable housing, and family support services. Below you will find a list of the organizations receiving support in 2013.
The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship takes place at Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh, PA, June 27-30.
