Navistar to Provide Free Admission to LPGA Classic

News Release Issued: August 15, 2011 4:51 PM EDT

Navistar to Provide Free Admission to Navistar LPGA Classic At Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Capitol Hill Complex

Company Instead Encourages Donations to Wounded Warrior Project to Support Wounded Warriors and Caregivers

PRATTVILLE, AL. – AUGUST 15, 2011 —Navistar, Inc. announced that for the first time the 2011 Navistar LPGA Classic, to be held September 15-18, 2011 at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Capitol Hill complex in Prattville, Alabama, will be open to the public free of charge. Navistar, in partnership with the LPGA and the Retirement Systems of Alabama, will instead honor those who serve in the U.S. armed forces by asking event attendees to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP), a nonprofit organization that provides programs and services for injured service members and caregivers.

In its fifth year, the Navistar LPGA Classic has confirmed more than 100 of the world's top women golfers, including the top six-ranked players: Yani Tseng, Cristie Kerr, Suzanne Pettersen, Jiyai Shin, Na Yeon Choi and I.K. Kim.

“Our commitment to our customers and the communities we serve not only motivates us as a company—it drives us,” said Dan Ustian, chairman, president and CEO, Navistar International Corporation. “This tournament is a great opportunity for us to help Wounded Warrior Project and raise awareness about the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. And with admission to the tournament being complimentary, we hope that attendees will consider taking a portion of the admission fee they would have paid and donate to Wounded Warrior Project.”

More than 45,000 of our nation’s armed forces have been physically wounded during the recent military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hundreds of thousands more are estimated to be recovering from invisible wounds of war, including post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury. WWP assists wounded warriors and their families through a holistic approach to their recovery. In addition, Wounded Warrior Project’s Warriors to Work program assists warriors with the transition back into the civilian workforce, including many jobs in the trucking and transportation industry. This free program offers a complete package of employment-assistance services, including resume assistance, interviewing skills, job training, networking and job placement assistance.

“We are thankful to Navistar for their commitment to our mission of honoring and empowering wounded warriors,” said Steve Nardizzi, Executive Director of Wounded Warrior Project. “Their efforts to support Wounded Warrior Project are a reflection of their dedication to assisting our nation’s wounded veterans and their families.”

How-to Donate
To donate, text “WWP” to 90999 on your mobile phone to donate $10 to Wounded Warrior Project. A $10.00 charge will be added to your mobile phone bill (or deducted from your prepaid account).
