Jamie Mandell, Sales Director at Endeavor Services Group, has been named General Chairman of the 2013 Porter Cup Golf Tournament. Raeanne Argy-Tyler, owner of Niagara Falls Coach Lines, will serve as Vice Chairman.
The Porter Cup will attract more than 80 top-ranked amateur players from around the world. The Tournament will take place from Tuesday, July 23 through Saturday, July 27 at the Niagara Falls Country Club. Mandell emphasizes the tournament is open to the public and admission is free.
2013 marks the 25th consecutive year M&&T Bank will serve as the Porter Cup’s Official Tournament Sponsor.
“It is an honor to be the General Chairman of such a prestigious event that over the years has become an important part of my family’s summer,” Mandell noted. “The Porter Cup gives the local golf fans the opportunity to watch some of the best amateurs in the world compete at the highest level in amateur golf.”
Mandell added that in addition to the players who have received an invitation based on past Porter Cup performance or due to their current level of play, an additional eight golfers will earn a spot in the field via a local qualifying tournament which is scheduled for Monday, June 24 at the Niagara Falls Country Club.
“Year after year, the Niagara Falls Country Club and its members proudly host some of the best amateur golfers from around the world. The Porter Cup Committee would like to thank the membership, staff and sponsors, without whose continued support the tournament could not exist.” Mandell said.
