CINCINNATI, FOX19 (OH) – The Cincinnati Organizing Committee for the 2012 World Choir Games has announced the Procter & Gamble Company as the first Official Presenting Sponsor for this event.

This is the highest level of sponsorship available to any participating company. The World Choir Games are set to take place in Cincinnati USA from July 4-14, 2012.

"We could not be more excited to announce P&G as the first Presenting Sponsor," said Dan Lincoln, president & CEO of the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau and director of World Choir Games 2012, Inc. "This confirms P&G's recognition of how important the 2012 World Choir Games are for Cincinnati and the entire region."
