News & Events
Sponsorships are an excellent way of promoting a cause, as they generate excellent publicity for both the cause and the sponsor, and frequently reach the hearts of the participants in an even more meaningful way.
If you would like to sponsor an individual or a team to run on behalf of the WGO at marathons, galas, golf or tennis tournaments we would be happy to make the arrangements for you, from sourcing suitable candidates to producing the necessary printed material or uniforms. The WGO can also help you find sponsors for sporting events and more – cake sales, dinners and luncheons, your own sporting, social or cultural events.
See the up-to-date list of meetings and events happening across the globe.
