Energy Management Collaborative (EMC) today announced its continued corporate sponsorship of the 3M Championship PGA Champions Tour, which marks its 25th anniversary this year. The tournament takes place August 4-6, 2017, 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, August 1, and the Pro-Am events Tuesday through Thursday, August 1-3. 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 31, followed by the fan-favorite Accenture Executive Women's Pro-Am on Tuesday, which will be hosted once again by LPGA legend Nancy Lopez.

Defending champion Joe Durant returns to defend his title against a field that includes two-time champion Bernhard Langer, Vijay Singh, Minnesota-native Tom Lehman, and PGA Tour Champions rookies David Toms and Steve Flesch.

Minnesota’s largest professional sports-related charity, the 3M Championship will donate $1.3 million in support of healthcare programs at Allina Health and has donated more than $25 million dollars since the tournament's inception in 1993.

“The 3M Championship is a cornerstone program for EMC to give back to the local community in our home state of Minnesota," said EMC President & CEO Jerry Johnson. “We are honored to be a sponsor again this year.”
