KitchenAid is the title sponsor of the Championship, which is held at Harbor Shores every other year. The event was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, making this year’s highly anticipated event even more exciting. KitchenAid is part of Whirlpool Corp., which is headquartered in Benton Harbor. Each year, KitchenAid provides fans the unique experience of the KitchenAid Fairway Club, where attendees of all ages can enjoy interactive activities and live cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs, while getting up close and personal with the latest and greatest KitchenAid products.
“This KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship has become part of the fabric of our local community, and we take great pride in bringing golf fans, foodies and cooking enthusiasts together to showcase our great Southwest Michigan through the international platform this sponsorship provides,” said Deb O’Connor, director of Global Corporate Reputation and Community Relations at Whirlpool Corp. “From our KitchenAid Fairway Club to the community showcase that highlights the best of our community to everyone that comes through the gates, we cannot wait to pull out all of the stops this year and welcome the players, volunteers, and our beloved fans back home to Harbor Shores.”
Volunteers are an essential part of the 2022 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship. By completing the registration, each volunteer can take advantage of the volunteer uniform package which includes a Nike golf polo, jacket, hat, meal and water vouchers, and a personalized Volunteer Credential which will provide access to the grounds all five days of the 2022 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship.
