Anritsu Company announces it is a corporate sponsor of the 2011 Frys.com Open PGA TOUR tournament to be held at CordeValle in San Martin, CA. Part of the PGA TOUR’s Fall Series, competitive rounds begin on Thursday, October 6, with the Final rounds on Sunday, October 9. The tournament will feature some of the finest golfers on tour, including Tiger Woods, defending champion Rocco Mediate, Ernie Els, Angel Cabrera, Paul Casey, Trevor Immelman, Steve Elkington, David Duval, and Justin Leonard.
"Anritsu plays an active role in a variety of worthy causes in and around Silicon Valley. Giving back to the community is part of our corporate charter. One of the main reasons we are sponsors of the Frys.com Open is because of the positive impact the tournament has on the community through its charitable donations," said Donn Mulder, Anritsu Senior VP and General Manager of the Microwave Measurements Division.
During the six-year history of the tournament, more than $3 million has been awarded to charity. The Frys.com Open donated $800,000 to local Santa Clara County charities in 2010 alone.
Proceeds from this year's tournament will benefit the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), a non-profit organization in Palo Alto, CA, whose chief goal is to expand the frontiers of mathematical knowledge. Additional proceeds will be donated to other outstanding charities, primarily located in Santa Clara County, including the First Tee of San Jose, the American Cancer Society, and Special Olympics of Northern California. Tournament management has a goal to deliver more than $1 million to charities in 2011.
