DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., July 15, 2020 – The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) today announced that Cambia Health Solutions has been named its Official Mask Partner. As the world’s leading female professional golfers return to play following an extended shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cambia Health Solutions is helping to promote the health and safety of this year’s competition by providing face masks to players, caddies and staff across the LPGA and Symetra Tours.
The use of cloth face coverings is recommended by the CDC when in public settings to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, along with other preventive measures, including social distancing, frequent handwashing, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently handled surfaces.
“We are reminded of the importance of community and the commitment we have to one another during this unprecedented time,” said Mark Ganz, CEO of Cambia Health Solutions. “Cambia is honored to be the Official Mask Partner of the LPGA Tour. We are happy to support the health and safety of the players and fans and are proud of our partnership with the LPGA, an organization that empowers leadership and mentorship of generations.”
Cambia Health Solutions is a long-time supporter of the LPGA Tour, serving as title sponsor of the Cambia Portland Classic since 2014. The Cambia Portland Classic is more than a golf tournament: it’s a celebration of women’s achievement, leadership and empowerment. Cambia and the Portland Classic have a long history of commitment to Portland-area organizations, raising millions of dollars over the years for causes that promote health and wellbeing of individuals and families in local communities. During this pandemic, they have also been a resource of information around COVID-19 health best practices to its customers across the United States and within the LPGA organization.
“As a trusted partner for many years on the LPGA Tour, Cambia Health Solutions was our first call when we started preparing to go back to play”, said Heather Daly-Donofrio, Chief Tour Operations Officer for the LPGA. “Keeping our athletes, caddies, staff and tournament partners healthy is our number one priority. We appreciate Cambia’s support in helping to keep us safe by wearing masks, and we hope to be a positive example of the measures we can all take to help mitigate the spread of COVID -19 around the world.”
Cambia Health Solutions also shares stories and messaging across LPGA platforms, including the LPGA Women’s Network. Cheryl Pegus, M.D., President of Consumer Health Solutions and Chief Medical Officer at Cambia Health Solutions, will participate in a panel discussion during the LPGA’s virtual Women’s E-Leadership series on July 16 at 2 p.m. Eastern.
