FlyPrivate® partners with Immokalee Foundation at 2007 Pro-Am Golf Tournament
Private Business Jets’ and the FlyPrivate® program are proud to announce their sponsorship of the 2007 Immokalee Foundation Pro-Am Golf Tournament, held at the Bay Colony Golf Club in Naples, FL. This year’s event, featuring well-known professional golfers such as Dana Quigley, Scott Hoch and Michelle McGann, as well as other celebrities such as Johnny Bench, sought to create awareness and increase donations for the Immokalee Foundation, which supports and helps raise funds to improve the lives of members of the Immokalee community with health care, education and career development. FlyPrivate® donated a prize on the Par- 3 11th hole, in which any eligible golfer would win $100,000 in private jet travel should they successfully ace a Hole-In-One.
“We are proud to support the vision of the Immokalee Foundation, and do our part to make a difference in the communities in which our clients live, and in the charities that they support,” commented Private Business Jets’ COO Don Smith. “The good works of the Immokalee Foundation makes a huge difference in the lives of many of the children who live in the greater Naples area, and we at FlyPrivate® could not be more proud to partner with such a dedicated and worthy organization.”
Although no golfers hit a Hole-In One in this year’s event, the tournament was highly successful. The Foundation has risen over $2,000,000 to help create a better future to the children of Immokalee.
