EGI Sponsors Hole #13 at the Annual March of Dimes Golf Tournament

Sponsorship advocates to raise awareness in the prevention of maternal and infantry health risks.


GONZALES, Louisiana— On May 17th and 18th, TotalEnergies & Refining USA, Carville Styrenics Site hosted their 26th Annual March of Dimes Golf Tournament at Pelican Point Golf & Country Club in Gonzales, Louisiana.


The 2-day tournament supported the March of Dimes campaign, Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait (HBWW).



March of Dimes (MoD) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to advocate for the prevention of infant birth defects and mortality. Through conductive research, MoD helps mothers and those of childbearing age in the assistance of carrying a full-term pregnancy. Over the last 80 years, March of Dimes has focused on building a legacy that aids in the overall improvement and prevention of maternal and infantry health risks.

Through the HBWW campaign, the MoD chapter-led partnerships provide high-quality, field-tested education materials to women of childbearing age with accurate and relevant health information. Johnson & Johnson has also been a continuous supporter of HBWW for nearly 10 years.


In 2021, MoD provided educational programs and materials to more than 50,000 families and individuals. Their team of Volunteers raised $500,000 in over 250 DIY (do-it-yourself) fundraisers. Additionally in 2021, the organization held its largest fundraiser, March for Babies: A Mother of A Movement, which raised an upwards of $23 million— completely virtual!


On May 13, 2022, March of Dimes announced their partnership with the WNBA New York Liberty to advocate the maternal and infant health crisis.





Equipment Group International is eager to continue sponsorship opportunities and grow industry connections across the nation.
