Golf Tourney Raises $25k for ADA
On Thursday, October 4, Hotels.com® and its partners teed-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. Tournament organizers said the event is expected to net at least $50,000 – of which $25,000 will go to the ADA.
“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 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 volunteered in organizing the event and proceeds will support the work of these organizations.
