Last Friday’s YellowBird Charity Golf Classic raised more than $35,000 for the YellowBird Charitable Foundation and drew more than 140 travel industry insiders to Glen Abbey Golf Club.
The tournament attracted a full field of golfers who enjoyed a great day of golf, hosted by founding sponsor Travelweek in partnership with title sponsors WestJet and WestJet Vacations, in support of this worthy cause. Fundraising activities included live and silent auctions, raffles and event sponsorships.
The YellowBird Charitable Foundation is dedicated to helping children in the Caribbean and Latin America as a way to say ‘thanks’ for providing memorable vacation experiences for Canadian travellers to those regions.
The YellowBird Charitable Foundation has donated over $300,000 across the Caribbean and Latin America since its inception in 2005. In 2015 over $42,000 was raised in a single day.
