IFCO is pleased to announce its endorsement of PGA Tour golfer Ryan Palmer and ongoing support of his Foundation, the mission of which is “to promote community involvement and constant focus on the health and education of today's young people and their opportunity to succeed“. In 2011, as an ambassador of IFCO, Ryan will participate in approximately 28 events wearing the IFCO company logo on his shirt and attend corporate outings to meet with IFCO customers.
“We are proud to endorse Ryan‘s 2011 PGA Tour season,“ says Dave Russell, President of IFCO SYSTEMS N.A. “Ryan is not only an accomplished golfer, but a great role model as well. His commitment to providing greater opportunities to children through his Foundation is something we are happy to support.“
Ryan Palmer comments on the expanded relationship: “I am excited and honored to represent IFCO. IFCO has been a consistent supporter of our foundation and it is only natural to promote them on the PGA Tour and be an ambassador of the company. What a great fit!“
In addition to its regular activities, The Ryan Palmer Foundation opened the Palmer Healing Garden and two activity areas in 2010 at the Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo, Texas, to provide play rooms and entertainment for children staying in the Children's Hospital. IFCO has regularly contributed to the Foundation since 2005.
