DENVER, May 16, 2005 -- Water For People (WFP), an international nonprofit organization that focuses on long term water and sanitation needs in underdeveloped areas, is pleased to announce its upcoming charitable golf tournament at Sanctuary Golf Course in Sedalia, Colo. The American Water 2005 Water For People Golf Event presented by RE/MAX International, Inc. will take place on Monday, Aug. 22.

Sponsors of the event include: American Water, Sensus Metering Systems, Big O Tires, CH2M Hill, Infilco Degremont, MWH, Neptune Technology Group Inc. and Weston Solutions Inc.

Sanctuary, the private golf course of Dave and Gail Liniger, co-founders of RE/MAX International, offers a pristine setting with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains. Rated as one of the top 100 Courses in the United States by Golf Digest for four years, Sanctuary offers a wonderful golfing experience for even the most seasoned players.

WFP is an international humanitarian organization that recognizes water as the primary building block to social, economic and environmental good. Founded in 1991 by members of the American Water Works Association, we are motivated by the strong connection between water deprivation and poverty. The need is great. It has been estimated that over 6,000 people, mostly children, die every day from water related diseases.
