BOSTON, March 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 240 amateur golfers will compete in the Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational National Finals at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, N.C., March 30- April 3, 2016. The event is the culmination of a series of more than 75 charity golf tournaments around the country in 2015 hosted by Liberty Mutual and local and national charitable organizations that raised more than $8 million for charity.
"Supporting charitable organizations in communities where our employees live and work is an important part of who we are as a company," said David H. Long, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Liberty Mutual Insurance. "We are truly grateful for the generosity of more than 12,000 amateur golfers across the country who are equally committed to their communities, and we are proud to partner with so many worthy local and national charities who serve individuals and families most in need."
Two-time U.S. Open Champion and World Golf Hall of Famer Curtis Strange, honorary chairman of the Liberty Mutual Invitational, will interact with players and conduct a clinic for the field. "I am proud and honored to support the Liberty Mutual Invitational, an amateur golf tournament that has raised over $37 million for so many great charities in just six years," said Strange.
The Chinese Hospital of San Francisco is just one example of the dozens of Liberty Mutual Invitational beneficiaries. The funding they received enabled the charity to expand its services to ensure the well-being and security of those most vulnerable in the San Francisco area.
"We are deeply grateful to be a part of this year's Liberty Mutual Invitational, which raised more than $1.3 million toward our new 100,000 square-foot hospital building," said Brenda Yee, CEO of the Chinese Hospital. "Contributions such as this allow us to continue helping thousands of people receive health care in a cost effective way that is responsive to the community's ethnic and cultural uniqueness and provide access to health care and acceptability to all socioeconomic levels."
