Caddy For A Cure Announces Partnership with Emerick Construction Company

Highest ranked Oregon commercial contractor expands its live, work, play giving back program

(Coral Springs, FL) - Caddy For A Cure, Inc., the professional golf opportunity to go inside the ropes and caddy for a day with the world's best players, announced a new partnership with Emerick Construction Co. as a new sponsor for 2012.

Since 1943, Emerick Construction has been consistently delivering high quality, responsive and honest general contracting work from Portland, Oregon, Southern Washington and California. Through its years of experience, Emerick is able to specialize in the delivery of CM/GC Services, Occupied Facilities, Educational, Seismic Upgrades, Historic Renovations, Commercial Renovations, Office Buildings, Tenant Improvements, Hi-Tech Complexes and Civic/Cultural Facilities. Additionally, Emerick has a Specialized Projects Group to specifically address clients with unique needs. In 2011, Oregon Business Magazine ranked Emerick #8 in medium sized businesses Best Companies and highest ranked General Contractor in all business size categories.

Caddy For A Cure CEO and program founder Russ Holden said "Our first opportunity to learn about Emerick came through Vice President, Corey Lohman. Corey bid and won the opportunity to caddy at the 2011 LPGA Safeway Classic in Portland, not too far from the Emerick corporate headquarters in Happy Valley. Corey had the opportunity to spend the day inside the ropes with 2011 Kraft Nabisco champion, Stacy Lewis. The day was a great success for everyone, but especially for the people our program supports." Holden concluded, "Through this new partnership with Emerick as spearheaded by Corey, we look forward to increasing the charitable support from our program as we facilitate more amazing opportunities in the world of professional golf."

Emerick VP Corey Lohman commented, "When I heard about Caddy For A Cure I thought it sounded like a lot of fun and was a great way for contributing to worthy causes. It was a perfect opportunity for me to participate at the LPGA Safeway Classic in Portland, so I figured I'd give it a try. It was a blast from start to finish and a day I won't soon forget. Some time ago Emerick instituted a giving back program called Live, Work, Play as a means of supporting the communities in which we live, work and play. After seeing what Caddy For A Cure does and the many people the program helps, it made sense to partner with them to support the communities in which we 'play'. We're happy to be supporting them and providing the logoed golf shirts that are part of the Caddy For A Cure participant goody package. We're confident future program caddies will have as great of a time as I did."

Caddy For A Cure offers PGA TOUR, Champions Tour and LPGA Tour caddy opportunities through its 100% of auction proceeds are donated to charity. Funds are directed to the PGA TOUR Birdies for the Brave military outreach, the PGA TOUR Professional Caddy Assistance Foundation, the LPGA Foundation USGA-Girls Golf program, in support of Fanconi anemia and each participating player's and host site's charity.
