TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fans are eager for the start of curling’s Season of Champions, which begins with the Capital One Canada Cup on Nov. 28, 2012 in Moose Jaw, SK.
“Working with the CCA allows WFG to be affiliated with the energy and excitement of curling and to help expand awareness of how our company helps families throughout Canada get on better financial footing.”
WFGIA is a sponsor of the Seasons of Champions, a series of six championship events for competitive curlers sanctioned by the Canadian Curling Association (CCA). The company also is the title sponsor of the WFG Continental Cup 2013 in Penticton, British Columbia, January 10-13, 2013 — the fourth year the company has sponsored this exciting competition. Additionally, WFG is a top sponsor of an amazing group of curlers, Team Jennifer Jones.
“WFGIA has been committed to the sport of curling since 2006 when we first sponsored Team Randy Ferbey, or the Ferbey Four, and is pleased to be partnered with the CCA again this year and to be the title sponsor of the WFG Continental Cup 2013,” says Richard Williams, President, World Financial Group Insurance Agency of Canada Inc. “As a financial services company, WFGIA and its associates believe in helping families have a strong financial future by providing them with the education, products and services to support them. We think that strong families make stronger communities, which is why we proudly sponsor the family-friendly sport of curling, which brings so many people together to cheer on their favorite teams.”
WFGIA’s support of Team Jennifer Jones continues the company’s tradition of backing some of curling’s best athletes. Team Jennifer Jones is the 2012 Canadian Scotties Tournament of Hearts Bronze Medalist and the 2011 Silver Medalist. Additionally, it is one of just two teams that qualified for the 2013 Olympic Curling Trials with the hopes of representing Canada in the 2014 Winter Olympics. The team consists of Jennifer Jones (Skip), Dawn Askin (Lead), Jill Officer (Second), Kaitlyn Lawes (Third) and Janet Arnott (Coach) — all of whom have won world championships.
“We are proud to have Team Jennifer Jones wear our logo on their uniforms, and we look forward to watching this fantastic team hit the ice and win big,” says Paul Mineck, Chief Marketing Officer of World Financial Group, Inc. “Working with the CCA allows WFG to be affiliated with the energy and excitement of curling and to help expand awareness of how our company helps families throughout Canada get on better financial footing.”
