Valspar and Habitat for Humanity tee off
The Valspar Corporation is kicking off the inaugural Valspar Championship -- taking place March 13 to 16 -- with a Habitat for Humanity community build in the Tampa area.
Valspar, together with Habitat, PGA TOUR Wives Association, PGA TOUR players and Habitat families will participate in the build, which will take place in a Pinellas County community made exclusively of Habitat for Humanity homes.
“At Valspar, we believe that color has power to change lives," said chairman and CEO Gary Hendrickson. "We are proud to join forces with Habitat for Humanity to bring a little more color into the homes of the Tampa Bay community."
Additionally, the company will set up an interactive Valspar Championship Expo Tent at the tournament where attendees can learn more about the two organizations. The "Valspar Putt for Habitat Challenge" will give guests the opportunity to raise money for Habitat, with Valspar donating $5 to Habitat for every putt made (up to $15,000 total).
Valspar is Habitat for Humanity's national paint partner, meaning it provides paint for all Habitat homes built in the U.S. It's also the official paint supplier of the PGA Tour.
