Sponsors Chip In for Monarch Golf Event

In turn, many people would lose vital services that are a part of their everyday life. First Citizens Bank recognizes the need for support and has graciously stepped in as the Platinum Sponsor. Gardner and Hughes, PLLC is the Gold Sponsor and Bear Insurance Service and Kerr Health are both Silver Sponsors of the tournament.

Dana Story, public relations and marketing specialist at Monarch expressed her thanks to tournament supporters, “We are so grateful to all of our sponsors and donors. Their participation will help us continue to provide the best possible service and support to thousands across North Carolina. This event will be a success because of them.”
