This will be a lifelong memory for those athletes and for those of us at Alfa as well.”
The World Games 2022 CEO Nick Sellers said his staff is thrilled to have Alfa, a mainstay of the Alabama business community, on board.
“Alfa and the thousands of Alfa employees across Alabama represent the gold standard for supporting communities,” Sellers said. “Their longstanding commitment to youth and amateur sports is a great fit for this partnership.
