Get ready, the YellowBird Charity Golf Classic is just around the corner

TORONTO — The 2018 YellowBird Charity Golf Classic will take place on June 1 at Glen Abbey Golf Course in Oakville.

All spaces for golfers are already completely sold out but there are still three great options left for those who wish to attend the event.

First, there’s a lunch and spa package going for $180 per person that offers three spa treatments in the ‘spa bus’ before joining the lunch reception. Treatments start at 10 a.m. and options include manicures, keratin foot massages, full body massages and back and shoulder massages.

The second option comes with lunch and golf lessons for $220 per person. Prior to joining the lunch reception, there are two hours of golf instruction with Glen Abbey golf instructors. The third option, for $75, is to join the lunch reception.

As always there will be live and silent auctions with a wide range of items up for bid.

A few sponsorship opportunities still remain. This year’s title sponsors are WestJet and WestJet Vacations.

The YellowBird Charitable Foundation is a non-profit organization that strives to provide aid and opportunities for children in the Caribbean and Latin America. The idea is to give back to the communities that provide such amazing vacations experiences for the travel industry’s clients.

YellowBird currently has a project underway installing solar panels at the Hatfield Community Centre in Savanna-la-Mar, Jamaica.

YellowBird has also teamed up with the Sandals Foundation to rebuild a school in Turks and Caicos suffered significant damage during last fall’s hurricanes. Enid Capron Primary School has 586 children ages three to 11 in full-time attendance. The school suffered major structural damage and many classrooms had to be closed off, with students relocated to the community centre across the road.

YellowBird, the Sandals Foundation and partners including the island’s Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Works are refurbishing the entire school building block, which houses the school kitchen, the nurse station, the computer lab and the teacher resource room. The scope of work will include re-roofing the building, new ceilings, power washing tile floors, complete electrical work, interior and exterior painting and replacing and installing damaged windows and doors.
