HARTFORD, Conn., May 4, 2015 – The Travelers Championship today announced that its 2015 Women’s Day Breakfast will feature Martha Stewart, one of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, and celebrity chef Cat Cora. The seventh annual Women’s Day, sponsored by Travelers, will be held on Thursday, June 25, at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, and will benefit tournament charities including The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, which serves children with serious illnesses.
Women’s Day officially begins with a special networking breakfast that will include an interactive cooking demonstration with Cora, where she will offer tips for cooking some of her most popular dishes. Stewart will then share her journey to success, which has led to a recently elevated focus on healthy living. In addition to the Women’s Day Breakfast, all women attending the tournament on Women’s Day will be offered complimentary tours of the Golf Channel studio, preferred bleacher seating, a 10 percent discount at the official merchandise tent, and a golf clinic at the tournament’s practice facility.
“One of our goals is to continue to deliver a bigger and better event each year that reaches a wide audience and helps us generate more money for charity,” said Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “This year, we worked closely with Travelers to deliver a networking breakfast that features well-known guests such as Martha Stewart and Cat Cora who resonate with women throughout the region. In addition to the breakfast, there are other benefits offered throughout the day to provide women with a unique PGA TOUR experience.”
Martha Stewart has been a source of motivation and inspiration to many for years. The founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and Emmy® Award-winning television show host, entrepreneur, and best-selling author is widely considered to be America’s most trusted lifestyle expert and teacher. Millions of people rely on Martha Stewart as a source of useful “how-to” information and a guide for many aspects of everyday living, including cooking, entertaining, gardening, home renovating, collecting, organizing, crafting, holiday festivities, healthy living, and pet goods.
Cat Cora is an American professional chef best known as the first female “Iron Chef” on the Food Network’s Iron Chef America and as co-host of Around the World in 80 Plates on Bravo. In addition to being a celebrated chef, Cat Cora is an accomplished lifestyle entrepreneur, author, restaurateur, contributing editor, and television personality.
“We appreciate the generosity of both Martha and Cat for volunteering to be a part of this special day, which helps the Travelers Championship generate money for its charities,” said Doreen Spadorcia, Vice Chairman of Travelers. “Since its inception in 2009, Women’s Day has grown in prominence and attendance and is now one of the most popular days during tournament week. With Martha and Cat as our special guests, this year’s event will be exciting, informative, and truly memorable.”
Travelers is once again the presenting sponsor for Women’s Day. Hartford Business Journal, Hartford HealthCare, Red Thread, and Lux Bond & Green will serve as event partners.
