The Colony, TX – The Volunteers of America Classic – the only LPGA event in Texas – is excited to announce its new partnership with the Dallas Mavericks organization. The Volunteers of America Classic tournament mission is to be the premier community event in North Texas and create an atmosphere that is fun for the entire family. These values directly align with those of the Dallas Mavericks, a prominent figure in the North Texas community and its initiatives.
“The Dallas Mavericks are continually looking for ways to support the North Texas community and we are so excited to partner with the Volunteers of America Classic. Nothing is better than supporting women in professional sports and creating a local event for our community to enjoy,” said Dallas Mavericks CEO, Cynt Marshall.
As a part of this partnership, Cynt Marshall will be joining other business leaders on a panel of speakers at the Women’s Leadership Summit presented by Versant Health, Tuesday, October 1; in conjunction with tournament week. The summit will focus on creating a space to empower women, develop and strengthen skills and build networks.
Spectators can also expect to see the Dallas Mavericks brand on-site throughout tournament week. The Kids Zone presented by the Mavs will be a fun-filled activation complete with a basketball court, Mavs Gaming and much more located within the Tailgate on the Green. Open Friday through Sunday of tournament week, families are encouraged to bring their kids to engage with the Mavs mascot and ManiAACs and join in on all the fun.
In alignment with their commitment to service, the Mavs have also become the tournament’s official volunteer partner, providing support to over 600 volunteers who donate their time to make the Volunteers of America Classic successful. Spectators will see the Mavs logo displayed on all the volunteer’s uniforms throughout the tournament and volunteers will get to experience an awesome appreciation party at a pre-season Mavs game!
