INDIANAPOLIS – The Tiffany & Co. Nine & Wine has been unveiled as the latest addition to the 2010 Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament, presented annually by Indiana Sports Corporation and Indiana Black Expo. The event will be held on Monday, June 21, at Broadmoor Country Club and is exclusive to women golfers of all skill levels. All participants will take part in a 9-hole scramble and tee off at 3 p.m. in a shotgun start.

“We are excited to add the Tiffany & Co. Nine & Wine to this year’s Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament,” Nine & Wine Committee Co-Chair Connie Shepherd said. “The event offers an incredibly unique experience, with wine-tasting on the golf course and an exclusive reception at Tiffany & Co. If you are a female golfer in Indianapolis, this event is for you.”

While on the course, golfers will have the opportunity to sample delicious international wines. Two oases will be set up on each nine; each with a different theme based upon the country they represent. Appetizers will also be served at the stations.

Included in the Tiffany & Co. Nine & Wine package is an invitation to an exclusive Tiffany & Co. reception and tickets to the Pathfinder Awards. Tiffany & Co. will host a private party for all Nine & Wine participants at their Fashion Mall location on Thursday, June 17. The reception includes jewelry shopping, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. There are only 120 Nine & Wine packages available.

The Pathfinder Awards will be held on Sunday, June 20, in Conseco Fieldhouse.
