NEW YORK, May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AmTRAN Video Corp. (AVC), a leader in HD and Ultra HD TV design and manufacturing, today announced  that is now a  national sponsor of the NFL Alumni (NFLA)'s chapter charity golf tournaments. As part of the partnership, JVC TV by AmTRAN will be the HDTV of choice for the NFLA's Pro Football Legends.

The NFLA has over 25 active chapters across the United States, which each host a golf tournament that raises money for local charities in the respective regions.

"We are excited to have AmTRAN on board to support our efforts, and we look forward to this new partnership and the many positive ways we can work together."

In addition, the winning team from each of the chapter events competes in the annual nationwide Super Bowl of Golf, which AmTRAN will also sponsor.

"The NFL Alumni Association has an incredible track record of sponsoring highly popular events that draw big crowds for worthwhile causes," said Drew Pragliola, senior vice president of sales and marketing for AVC.
