BOCA RATON — Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America announced it will donate $1,000 for every birdie from Allianz-sponsored golfer Tom Lehman – last year’s champion — at the upcoming Allianz Championship February 6-12 at the Old Course at Broken Sound in Boca Raton.

The money will be shared between the southern Florida chapters of Junior Achievement and the Alzheimer’s Association.

“This is a fun and exciting way to support the local community and we’re confident that Tom is up to the challenge,” said Allianz Life Chief Marketing Officer Nancy Jones. “Allianz Life is proud to work with Junior Achievement and the Alzheimer Association to further our goals of enhancing financial literacy and senior service programs.”

In this challenge, every time Lehman shoots a birdie (meaning 1 stroke under par), Allianz Life will donate $500 each to the southern Florida chapters of Junior Achievement and the Alzheimer’s Association.

With 15 chapters in Florida, Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs. The Alzheimer’s Association enhances efforts for researching a cure and provides support and educational services to Alzheimer’s patients, families and caregivers.

The Allianz Championship is the Champions Tour’s first tournament of the early-season Florida swing. The tournament includes such legends of golf as Bernhard Langer, Nick Price, and Allianz-sponsored golfers Tom Lehman and John Harris. The Golf Channel will be televising all three rounds and proceeds benefit Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
