The Allianz Championship last week announced that the 2015 edition of the event at Broken Sound Golf Club in Boca Raton raised over $600,000 with just over $400,000 of that being donated to the Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
The hospital, which is the primary beneficiary of the Aliianz, has received over $1 million in the 10 years since the event moved to the Boca Raton area.
“Not only have proceeds from the Allianz Championship supported our mission in a material way,” said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO of the Hospital, “but we have also benefitted from the publicity the Allianz generates and the genuine interest the Champions Tour players have shown in our clinical capabilities and the services we provide to our patients.”
The $600,000 raised in 2015 is a new record for the event, surpassing the amount raised in 2014 by 50 percent.
“It’s truly a testament to the regional business community, spectators, volunteers and the membership at The Old Course of Broken Sound that make this announcement possible,” said Ryan Dillon, Tournament Director for the Allianz Championship. “Over the past four years, we have seen significant increases in our donations that benefit Boca Raton Regional Hospital and the many deserving charities in the region.”
The $600,000 donation to the hospital was dispersed to three different departments with $200,000 going to the General Fund, $150,000 going to the Christine E. Lynn Women’s Wellness Center and $52,000 going to the Toppel Family Place Neonatal Care Unit.
In addition to the large donation to Boca Raton Regional Hospital, the Allianz also donated $50,000 to both the Junior Achievement of South Florida and One Summit, a non-profit program founded by former Navy SEAL Adam LaReau that helps to provide children battling cancer with the courage, self-confidence and resilience needed to continue their fight.
The 2016 edition of the Aliianz Championship will be held February 1st through the 7th at Broken Sound in Boca Raton. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit www.allianzchampionship.com.
