The Special Event Company to Sponsor PGA Professional, Tim (Lumpy) Herron


The Special Event Company, a full-service live and virtual event agency, is pleased to announce a new sponsorship deal that has been put into place with PGA Professional and Champions Tour player Tim (Lumpy) Herron. Herron will play a lead role in supporting The Special Event Company through marketing initiatives.

"We're thrilled about our new partnership with Tim Herron - I've known him for quite a while through my husband, Grant Berry, a professional caddie on the PGA Tour, and we're excited to officially partner in this capacity," said Sally Webb, CEO of The Special Event Company. "It's rare for a small business to sponsor a PGA professional, and we're grateful for this huge opportunity!" said Webb.

With the need for in-person meetings continuing to rise, and technology playing an increasingly vital role in bringing people together, virtually, this was a natural fit for both partners. "I understand the need for event and virtual communication solutions and am excited to help showcase The Special Event Company's capabilities in a fun way," said Tim Herron.

Herron and The Special Event Company not only share a love of golf but also a love for creative storytelling. Herron is known for his Lump Co videos and his appearance in the famous "Sign Boy" FootJoy commercials. This sponsorship is slated to increase awareness of the live and virtual event services and communication solutions that The Special Event Company offers.
