Diamond Resorts International hosts 2nd annual charity golf tournament & raises $805,000 for Florida Hospital for Children
Determined to exceed last year’s donation, Diamond Resorts International® successfully achieved its goal and raised $805,000 to benefit the Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children (FHFC) at the Brian Gay Invitational at Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club in Celebration, Florida earlier this month.
In 2013 and 2014 combined, the Brian Gay Invitational presented by Diamond Resorts International® has raised more than $1.2 million to aid the Florida-based children’s medical facility in its vital, life-saving mission.
With more than 400 attendees, golfers and celebrities participating in the event, the weekend included a celebrity/amateur golf tournament in which foursomes were paired with a celebrity. The 2014 celebrity field included hall of fame athletes Reggie Jackson, Gaylord Perry, Marcus Allen, Eric Dickerson, Richard Dent and other accomplished stars from the world of both sports and popular music.
As a company dedicated to the understanding that taking vacations is beneficial to people’s health, happiness and relationships with their loved ones, Diamond Resorts ensured that all attendees and their families were able to experience a much deserved vacation and create memories that would last a lifetime. With this in mind, non-golfers and families were invited to spend the day at one of Orlando’s theme parks or enjoy a luncheon and cooking discussion with a celebrity chef.
“Once again Diamond Resorts International® has exceeded all expectations and delivered an unforgettable experience. Flawless from start to finish, this weekend was truly a world-class event all for the sake of a very worthy cause. I am proud to lend my name and support this charitable effort,” said Brian Gay, Diamond’s PGA touring professional.
