LS travel retail Kicks Off 2011 Golf Tournament In Support Of Make-A-Wish® Canada

On Thursday August 18th, we teed off with our 15th Annual golf tournament and first as LS travel retail North America. The event raised $15,000, which will help Make-A-Wish® grant more wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions all over Canada. It attracted around 185 service providers and 75 LS travel retail employees, some of whom joined the golf day and the balance volunteered their time to assist in the smooth running of the tournament.

This year’s event gathered LS travel retail’s staff, suppliers and business partners at the Club at Bond Head, North of Toronto, and featured a day of fun on the golf course, a gala dinner, the golf awards, a silent auction and a fantastic prize table: “A great turnout, beautiful weather and exciting prizes and giveaways contributed to the incredible success of the event.” says Rasha Abdo, Marketing Coordinator and organizer of the event.

A long-term partner of Make-A-Wish, LS travel retail is proud to have risen over $100,000 towards the cause since last year. Jennifer Klotz – Ritter, CEO of Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Canada commented: “We love working with all of you and greatly appreciate everything LS travel retail (and your supporters) does to make wishes come true for our brave wish children and their families”.
