Orange County – Oct. 31, 2011 – Power Balance, pioneers in performance technology sportswear, today announced a hole-in-one challenge that gives fans a chance to win $30,000 and top golfers the chance to support the charity of their choice.
If Keegan Bradley, Ian Poulter or Hunter Mahan can sink a hole-in-one on Hole 17 during the WGC-HSBC Golf Championships in Shanghai, November 3-6, 2011, Power Balance has pledged to donate $300,000 to the golfer’s charity of choice and award a $30,000 cash prize to one lucky fan that enters the sweepstakes at http://www.powerbalance.com/holeinonechallenge. The winner will be chosen from online entries into the sweepstakes; no purchase is required to enter the contest.
All three golfers have been at the top of their game recently. Ian Poulter took home the trophy at the Volvo World Match Play Championship in Spain in May, while Hunter Mahan finished second at the Fedex Cup in September, and Keegan Brandley won the PGA Championship in August and recently captured the PGA Grand Slam of Golf on October 20.
“This is a fun, interactive way to give back to our golfing communities,” said Josh Rodarmel, co-founder of Power Balance. “Golfers have consistently given us great feedback about our products and continue to comprise an important segment of our business.”
Power Balance technology products are worn by a community of millions of everyday people and hundreds of professional athletes – from Drew Brees to Derrick Rose, Matt Kemp to all three golfers participating in this challenge.
The online sweepstakes began last week with promotional giveaways and more on the Power Balance website, Facebook and Twitter.
