Omni Hotels & Resorts Announces PGA TOUR Players Kevin Kisner and Scott Stallings as Brand Ambassadors
Kisner and Stallings to play active role in Omni’s charitable initiative Birdies-or Better supporting Feeding America
DALLAS (January 21, 2020) – Omni Hotels & Resorts, the Official Hotel of the PGA TOUR, today announced its new partnership with PGA TOUR golfers Scott Stallings and Kevin Kisner. Both Stallings and Kisner hold three PGA TOUR victories each and Kisner is currently ranked 30th in the Official World Golf Rankings and finished ninth in the 2019 FedExCup final standings.
As ambassadors for Omni, Stallings and Kisner will actively engage with the brand through social media and will attend various Omni-sponsored events during tournaments to share more about Omni Hotels & Resorts, as well as playing an integral role in the Birdies-or-Better campaign, Omni’s charitable initiative with the TOUR. To date, Omni has been able to provide families in need with nearly 300,000 meals and with Stallings and Kisner making a combined total of 207 birdies or better this season so far, they are going to continue to lead Omni in its mission to help end hunger across the country.
“Having Stallings and Kisner be a part of the Omni family and represent us on and off the course is an exciting partnership that will elevate the Omni brand within the golf scene,” said Dan Surette, chief sales officer of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “These two talented TOUR players are both actively engaged in the community and want to make a positive impact which is why we are proud to partner with players like them.”
The Birdies-or-Better campaign started in June of 2018 as an extension of Omni’s Say Goodnight to Hunger program, which gives one meal to Feeding America for one night’s stay at any domestic Omni hotel or resort. The Birdies-or-Better campaign is a way for Omni, TOUR players and tournaments to come together for a great cause by providing meals for a family of four for every birdie-or-better made during each PGA TOUR event.
“When out on the course, I want to play my best and make birdies, but there is no better feeling to know that each birdie-or-better goes towards something greater,” stated Scott Stallings, PGA TOUR player. “My family and I love to stay at Omni properties across the country and I grew up staying at the Omni Mount Washington Resort, so partnering with them to help fight hunger was a no brainer for me.”
“I am lucky to make a living playing a sport that I love,” said Kevin Kisner, PGA TOUR player. “The ultimate goal at each tournament is to win and by knowing that if I make a ‘birdie-or-better’ I can help children and families fight hunger, it’s another added motivation to make me play better.”
Meal donations were made to local Feeding America food banks in each tournament’s home city and include, but are not limited to the following:
- North Texas Food Bank
- Tarrant County Area Food Bank
- Capital Area Food Bank
- The Greater Boston Food Bank
- Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank
- Second Harvest Food Bank
- Community Foodbank of New Jersey
- Atlanta Community Food Bank
