The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship Continues Its Support of Charitable Organizations Throughout Greater Pittsburgh

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.

Visitors to the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship this week probably won't notice all the electricity it takes to run the event, but Constellation is committed to offsetting it through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates.
