The Wyndham Championship has for the third year in a row, named Victory Junction Camp the official charity of the tournament.
“Just as Wyndham Worldwide is focused on accommodating the needs of our guests, we are also committed to supporting the communities we serve,” said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO of Wyndham Worldwide. “Our relationship with Victory Junction Camp has been a tremendously rewarding experience for all of us at Wyndham Worldwide. We are proud to once again make Victory Junction the official charity of the Wyndham Championship.”
Victory Junction Camp, a year–round camping facility, enriches the lives of children with chronic medical conditions and serious illnesses, such as cancer, arthritis, hemophilia, diabetes and physical disabilities by providing life–changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering in a safe and medically sound environment. The Camp was opened in 2004 by Pattie and Kyle Petty in honor of their son Adam.
“It is such a privilege to receive another donation from the Wyndham Championship because it not only helps us expand our programs but it also highlights our services to a national audience,” said Pattie Petty, chairman and co–founder of Victory Junction. “The support from the tournament, our local community and Wyndham Worldwide ensures we continue serving as many children as possible during these tough economic times.”
The 2009 Wyndham Championship begins tomorrow at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. Additional tournament information is available at www.wyndhamchampionship.com or through the tournament office at (336) 379–1570.
