3.  Travelers Woman's Day Breakfast Registration information:
Tickets for the Women’s Day Breakfast include general admission to the tournament and typically sell out quickly. THEY GO ON SALE: at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 30, at  Travelers Championship Website and will be limited to two per persons.

HARTFORD, Conn., May 22, 2019 – The Travelers Championship today announced details for its 11th annual Women’s Day, taking place Thursday, June 20, at TPC River Highlands. The day includes a special networking breakfast featuring “Face the Nation” moderator Margaret Brennan and Tony Award-winning actress Kelli O’Hara. Proceeds will benefit tournament charities, including The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, which serves children with serious illnesses.
 
Benefits offered to all women attending the Travelers Championship on Women’s Day include a golf clinic at the TPC River Highlands practice facility; a 10 percent discount on purchases in the official merchandise shop; preferred bleacher seating; exclusive tours of the Golf Channel’s on-site studio; and the opportunity to attend a live broadcast of “Golf Central.”

“This year’s Women’s Day Breakfast promises to be another highly successful event,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “Margaret brings a unique perspective and engaging stories, having reported on some of the nation’s biggest events over the past decade. And with Kelli’s extensive experience on and off Broadway, she is sure to entertain the crowd.”
 
Travelers is once again the presenting sponsor of the Women’s Day Breakfast. Webster Bank will serve as the supporting sponsor for the second year, and the Hartford Business Journal, Hartford HealthCare, Lux Bond & Green and Red Thread will return as event partners.
 
“We’ve been a proud sponsor of the Women’s Day Breakfast since its start 11 years ago,” said Mojgan Lefebvre, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology & Operations Officer at Travelers. “In that time, the breakfast has become a premier event during tournament week, raising a significant amount of money for charity through an inspirational program that reaches hundreds of women.”
