Advantage Sales and Marketing Co-Sponsors Will Golf 4 Kids

Rogers, AR, October 03, 2008 --( Advantage Sales and Marketing recently teamed up with Wal-Mart and Mars, Inc. to co-sponsor the 15th annual Will Golf 4 Kids charity golf tournament to benefit Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH). This year’s Will Golf 4 Kids event included a two-day golf tournament at the Kingsdale Golf Complex in Bella Vista, Ark.

“It truly was a team effort that made this event possible,” said Steve Collins, Mars Snack Team Leader. “The Color of Hope Charity Gala was a magical evening and we are honored to have the opportunity to work with our business partners towards such a worthwhile cause.”

Arkansas Children’s Hospital’s mission is to enhance, sustain and restore health and development of children by providing cutting-edge clinical services, teaching and research. ACH is committed to working with others to achieve high quality, cost-effective, fully accessible services for Arkansas's children, without regard to race, religion or inability to pay.

“ASM’s participation in this extraordinary event will help support the many vital programs ACH provides the children of Arkansas in need of medical care,” said Lori Jones Bramlett, ACH Foundation development officer.

“It was a tremendous experience to be able to partner with two of ASM’s most valued customers and clients to benefit the community in which we all live and work,” said Kevin Kraning, ASM’s National Customer Team Leader. “The Channel team in Bentonville was honored to have the opportunity to participate in this year’s events.”

This year’s Will Golf 4 Kids charity event has raised more than $780,000 for Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
