Monini Extra Virgin Olive Oil Sponsors Events and Feeds Athletes
NEW HAVEN, Conn., August 18-26, 2006

As during these last few years, the health benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil are underscored by Monini’s sponsorship of the athletic event: Monini North America, will be among the sponsors of the 2006 Pilot Pen Tennis tournament.
By special arrangement, Monini Extra Virgin Olive Oil also will be served to the participating athletes during the weeklong tournament. Studies have shown that extra virgin olive oil contributes to a healthy digestive system, is excellent for brain activity and bone mineralization, and reduces the rate of cardiovascular illness by lowering cholesterol levels.
