This year marks the 40th year of the Memorial Tournament, which is hosted by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and features the world's top golfers as they compete in what is widely considered to be golf's fifth major. 2015 also marks the fifth year that Nationwide has served as the presenting sponsor of an event that shines a spotlight on our hometown of Columbus, Ohio, and benefits Nationwide Children's Hospital.
When the world turns its attention to the Memorial Tournament June 1 - 7, we want the spotlight to shine brightly on the hospital, which provides world-class care to every child, regardless of a family's ability to pay.
Benefiting Nationwide Children's Hospital
Nationwide is proud to partner with Jack Nicklaus and the Memorial Tournament because of our shared commitment to giving back to the community. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Memorial Tournament Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. In 2014, the Memorial Tournament raised over $1.3 million for the hospital. Nationwide's Sports Marketing sponsorships, including the Memorial Tournament, will raise over $4 million a year for the hospital in 2015.
