WMBG Offers Airwaves to Promote Heritage Humane Society Golf Tournament

Heritage Humane Society would like to thank WMBG AM 740 for their Golf Pro sponsorship for the 5th Annual Make Par for Pets Golf Classic Presented by Chesapeake Bank that was played Monday, September 19 at Colonial Heritage Golf Club.

WMBG, which has been partnering with Mermaid Books and Heritage Humane Society for radio promotion of adoptable animals, decided to become a Golf Pro sponsor of the golf classic for the first time this year. With the help of our sponsors, including WMBG, this year's tournament broke attendance records for this event with more than 100 golfers registered to play.

"We are grateful for WMBG's sponsorship of the Make Par for Pets Golf Classic," said Heritage Humane Society Executive Director Kimberly Laska. "With their established history and stellar reputation in Williamsburg, they were integral in helping us promote our tournament through the use of their radio station. As a result of their sponsorship, we reached a record turnout for our tournament."
