Energy Management Collaborative (EMC) today announced its continued corporate support of the 3M Championship PGA Champions Tour. The tournament takes place August 3-5, 2018, at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, MN, with a variety of events throughout the week.

An event sponsor since 2006, EMC hosts the Pro-Am Draw Party on Tuesday, July 31, and the Pro-Am events Tuesday through Thursday, July 31 - August 2. The turnkey lighting solutions provider will greet tournament attendees at its skybox location on the 18th green throughout tournament play.

This great week of golf kicks off with a Pro-Am on Monday, July 30, followed by the fan-favorite Accenture Executive Women's Pro-Am on Tuesday, which will be hosted once again by LPGA legend Nancy Lopez.

2017 champion Paul Goydos returns to defend his title against a field that includes Minnesota-native Tom Lehman, and crowd favorite John Daly.

After 26 years, the 3M Championship will come to an end as an official PGA TOUR event brings the world’s top golfers to the Twin Cities for the new 3M Open in 2019.

Proceeds from the 3M Championship are donated to Abbott Northwestern Hospital Foundation, Mercy & Unity Hospitals Foundation and United Hospital Foundation, all part of Allina Health. In recent years, funding from the 3M Championship has supported expansion and improvement in emergency services, mother-baby care, neuroscience care, surgical services and more.

“We are proud to have been a sponsor of the 3M Championship over the years in support of the community where EMC is headquartered,” said EMC CEO Howard Heckes.
