2022 Waste Management Phoenix Open
FIBT sponsors exclusive Greenskeeper venue
First International Bank & Trust (FIBT) has announced a three-year sponsorship of the Greenskeeper Venue at the annual Waste Management Phoenix Open. For eight years, the WM Phoenix Open has been recognized as the largest zero-waste sporting event in the world. The tournament’s efforts to generate an effective and powerful environmental impact go hand-in-hand with FIBT’s community-first mentality.
Proceeds from the event are used by The Thunderbirds – hosts of the WM Phoenix Open – and Thunderbirds Charities to support organizations that assist children and families, help people in need, and improve the quality of life in the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan area. “The Thunderbirds’ focus on giving back is one of the things that caught our eye and inspired us to become a Greenskeeper sponsor,” says First International Bank & Trust Market President Erik Stenehjem. “One of our main bank-wide values is to leave a mark on our communities and this is a great way for us to help impact the Phoenix area.”
To celebrate the sponsorship, FIBT held a giveaway to award one lucky winner with two Greenskeeper credential tickets to the 2022 WM Phoenix Open. The giveaway winner was Caroline Crary of Bismarck, North Dakota. Caroline will be awarded tickets to the 2022 WM Phoenix Open and the exclusive Greenskeeper venue, as well as travel accommodations.
As part of her contest entry, Caroline shared the following, “My fiancé and I live first by spending our gorgeous, summer North Dakota evenings together playing golf! We are excited to be getting married this coming August 2022 so we can spend the rest of our lives playing golf together! We even had our engagement session done at the course. We each have on our bucket list to go to the Waste Management and the Masters so how fun to check this off the list! We would be forever grateful!!”
