RICHMOND, BC, June 11, 2019 /CNW/ – Some lucky B.C. charities will benefit from the record amount of money raised at Pacific Coastal Airlines’ 27th Annual Memorial Charity Golf Tournament. 

This year’s event, which was held at Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club in Richmond, B.C., attracted a large number of sponsors and golfers from across B.C., Canada, and the United States. Together, they helped to raise more than $70,000.00, which will be distributed to a number of B.C. based charities, including the Source Club of Powell River, Native Education College (NEC) in Vancouver, and the Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society.

Since its inception in 1992, the Annual tournament has raised well over $500,000.00 for local charities. Pacific Coastal employees contribute their time and energy to make the golf tournament a success, and this year was no exception.

“It is definitely an employee driven event”, says Pacific Coastal Airlines Director of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs, Kevin Boothroyd. “As a B.C. owned and operated airline, supporting local communities has always been part of our corporate culture and it is wonderful to see our employees embrace that value through their ongoing commitment to this and the many other community causes they support each year.”
