ENDICOTT (WBNG) — The DICK’s Sporting Gods Open brought thousands of attendees, all for free thanks to local law firm, Hinman, Howard & Kattell.
“We just believed that the DICK’s Sporting Goods Open is a great event. They came to us and asked us if we thought this would be something that would be viable that we would do. We thought it would be a great gesture to the community that we do something like this,” said Jim Orband, Managing Partner at HH&K.
The firm purchased approximately 30,000 tickets. They’ve partnered with DICK’s Open since 2009, and they say they look forward to the event every year.
“A lot of times people haven’t seen a golf event, and they wouldn’t come out otherwise. They’re able to come out with a free ticket, and they tell us how much they enjoy it,” said Orband.
The DICK’s Sporting Goods Open continues through Sunday.
