Golf tournament to benefit the American Cancer Society and the American Diabetes Association
Today, Hotels.com® and its partners are teeing-up to host the inaugural Fairway to Wellness golf tournament at the Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine, Texas, to raise awareness and funding for the American Cancer Society and the American Diabetes Association.
The tournament is the brainchild of two Dallas-based Hotels.com employees who have been affected by cancer and diabetes. Employees from Hotels.com’s Dallas headquarters are organizing the event. Proceeds will support the work of these non-profit organizations.
“We are very excited and proud to be hosting an event that will not only bring the company together for a great cause, but will also help fund the work of two very important non-profit organizations,” said Victor Owens, vice president and general manager, Hotels.com North America. “We expect that this is just the first tournament of many to come.”
The event features on-site fundraising efforts, including an employee coin war, as well as door prizes and giveaways.
Sponsors include HotelPlanner.com (Platinum Sponsor); Hotels.com/Expedia, Microsoft/MSN, TargetCast Media, TripAdvisor, Yahoo! and Young & Rubicam Chicago (Gold Sponsors); Criteo, Facebook, Ignition One and Millennial Media (Silver Sponsors); and AOL, Fanscape, Finn Partners, Hulu and W3i (Bronze Sponsors).
