Lexus joins the V Foundation for Cancer Research and its mission to achieve Victory Over Cancer®, becoming the Exclusive Automotive Sponsor of the ESPYS Celebrity Golf Classic and Poker Tournament, as well as The V Foundation Wine Celebration.

“Lexus’ presence in the golf and culinary space has allowed us to see first-hand the impact the V Foundation for Cancer Research has on raising funds and awareness for cancer research,” said Nicole Peterson, Manager, Lexus Marketing. “Their dedicated and passionate community has inspired us to join the foundation’s fight against cancer as we support them at two of their signature events.”

Through this multi-year partnership, Lexus will provide courtesy vehicles for guest transport, in addition to sponsoring a “Hole In One” car giveaway at the ESPYS Celebrity Golf Classic  (July 8, 2024).
