Chiquita has made a strong commitment to the Nationwide Tour and to Greater Charlotte, and we look forward to building a first-class event.
“The Chiquita Classic will provide significant national and international exposure for not only the Chiquita brand, but the Charlotte community as well,” Calfee added. “The Classic will have a measurable impact on local charities given Chiquita’s corporate focus on giving back and building on the PGA TOUR’s already strong presence in Charlotte that the Wells Fargo Championship has established.”
