Professionals from the aviation industry hit the links with community leaders at The Spirit Airlines Charitable Foundation’s fourth annual golf event Thursday. Together, they collected a record $1 million for nonprofit organizations, nearly matching the total raised at the past three Spirit Open tournaments combined.
More than 200 partners and team members attended the reception and event at the Parkland Golf & Country Club, backed by more than 100 companies sponsoring the event. This year’s presenting sponsors are NextGen Aeronautics, Everise and Airbus.
“We are extremely grateful to our partners from across our international network who generously rallied to offer their support for the Foundation this year,” said Laurie Villa, President of The Spirit Airlines Charitable Foundation and SVP & Chief Human Resources Officer of Spirit Airlines. “With this year’s donations, we look forward to stepping up our long-term commitments benefitting children & families, education, military veterans and the environment.”
The Spirit Airlines Charitable Foundation is committed to inspiring positive change in the communities where we live and work. Investments are made in organizations that have a meaningful impact on the lives of children and families, education, the environment, and military veterans through Team Member volunteerism, monetary, and in-kind donations.
