JONESBORO, ARK: The Play It Again Sports Jonesboro Open presented by Prodigy announces two more Naming Sponsors have been signed for the 2020 tournament. Ritter Communications and Farmers Insurance will add their support to the third stop on the Disc Golf Pro Tour which takes place the week of April 13-19 at Disc Side of Heaven and Craighead Forest Park.
Ritter Communications has been a part of the Jonesboro Open from the inaugural event and this year they have agreed to up their sponsorship and add their name to the Media Day. The Ritter Communications Media Day will take place on Wednesday, April 15. This is the time when all local and national disc golf media have an opportunity to ask the top players in the world about the tournament and their preparations. Currently, there are five national media groups that have confirmed they will be in Jonesboro as the Disc Golf Pro Tour continues to grow.
Ritter Communications has a long history of supporting community events in Jonesboro as well as all the communities they serve. As the tournament grows Ritter wants to be a bigger part. Hadison Bates, Marketing Communications Specialist says, “We have been a part of the Jonesboro Open from the very beginning and we love to see the impact it is making on Jonesboro and Northeast Arkansas. This event brings hundreds of people to our area each year and we want to ensure its growth in the future.”
New to the Jonesboro Open is Farmers Insurance – McFadden/Clark Agency. The Paragould and Jonesboro agents have decided to add their name to the 4-man scramble to be held on Monday, April 13. This event is geared to people that have never played disc golf before to introduce them to the sport. The scramble will also serve as a direct fundraiser to The Arkansas Pet Savers (TAPS). Four-man teams will get to play the Rec Course at Disc Side of Heaven for just $100 per team and each team member will receive a brand-new disc to take home. The Farmers Insurance Scramble for TAPS will raise money and awareness for the local non-profit that rescues dogs and cats that have been placed on local shelters’ death row.
Prizes for the Farmers Insurance Scramble for TAPS will be provided to the top teams by Disc Side of Heaven and all money raised by the event will go directly to TAPS. Andrew Ingle from Farmers Insurance had this to say on why they have decided to support the Jonesboro Open, “We at Farmers love to see the Pro Tour come to Jonesboro and bring new opportunities to the community. More importantly, we love what TAPS does for dogs that have no options left. Farmers looks forward to giving back to the community and supporting organizations that make the area a better place to live.”
