Walmart Weekend of Giving

GPMAD to Partner with Walmart and Children’s Miracle Network for 2012 Weekend of Giving: Non-profit organization’s inaugural event comes at the height of Summer and reorganization

NEW YORK, NY (June 25, 2012) – Today Golf Professionals Making a Difference (GPMAD) announced that it will partner with Walmart, Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), Divisions Maintenance Group and Xempt Players Series for the Weekend of Giving held July 7-9th in the Greater Detroit, Michigan area. The weekend –which features plenary sessions for corporate and community based attendees, a Women in Leadership summit and Pro-Am Celebrity Golf Tournament– marks GPMAD’s inaugural effort since reorganizing in January.

Summer is an incredible time for organizational growth, branding and community impact as school children enjoy break, families come together for festivities and golf season is in full swing. By design, the partnership recognizes major national engagement efforts to address employment, diversity, health and wellness, education and community development. Although select Weekend of Giving events are invite- only, two are open for public registration:
