To kick off the 10th annual Deutsche Bank Championship, tourney organizers will host the first-ever Executive Women’s Day at TPC Boston on August 28.
Influential women from around New England are slated to meet at the site of the annual Labor Day tournament that will feature Tiger Woods, newly crowned PGA champ Rory McIlroy, defending Deutsche Bank champion Webb Simpson, and hometown boy Keegan Bradley, among others, going at it for four days starting on August 31.
The “Inspiring Women Today & Tomorrow” program, proceeds from which will benefit The Women’s Lunch Place, will begin with a “Power Brokers Breakfast” at 9 a.m. in the Championship’s Wedgwood Club. The breakfast panel will include Robyn Glaser, VP and club counsel with The Kraft Group and the New England Patriots; Simmons College president Helen Drinan; The Princeton Review’s chief executive Deborah Ellinger; and Patricia Flynn, trustee professor of economics and management at Bentley University.
The day will include a guided tour of the golf course facilities, a luncheon panel, and conclude with a “Wine Down-Network Up” event.
“Executive Women’s Day is a unique way to bring together the top female executives in Boston to socialize and network with their peers in the impressive environment of a PGA Tour Playoff event,” tourney director Eric Baldwin said in a statement. “The day truly provides an amazing opportunity for us to spread the word of the Deutsche Bank Championship’s impact in the community, and what it can do for businesses.”
The Women’s Lunch Place, a gathering place for homeless women since 1982, provides home-cooked meals to more than 150 women and children six days per week in Boston’s Back Bay area.
