“Everyone has a mother or a special mentor, male or female who have made an impact in our life, and that is who we want to celebrate,” said Tracy Hupko, Sales & Marketing Manager, Cognizant Founders Cup. “The Great MOM Giveaway Contest is an opportunity for people in the continental United States to tell the world about their special mother or mentor, and what that person means to them and how they have helped shape their life.”
Hupko adds, “Everything we do at the LPGA centers on supporting and empowering girls and women, and there is nothing more important than a MOM, especially one who serves as a role model and helps inspire not only family members, but friends and colleagues in business too.” More information on the contest can be found at www.LPGAFoundersCup.com/GreatMOM.
