DEDHAM, MASS. – In keeping with the tradition of giving back, Colpitts World Travel on Monday, Sept. 23, hosted its 24th Annual Jimmy Fund Golf Tournament at Charter Oak Country Club in Hudson.
The global travel company organized the event, which raised in excess of $50,000 for the Jimmy Fund. All proceeds support groundbreaking cancer research and patient care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
The Jimmy Fund has recognized Colpitts World Travel for its dedication to hosting the annual tournament, which over the years has donated more than $1 Million to the organization. “Colpitts prides itself not only on being a leader in the travel industry, but also on displaying leadership in our community,” Colpitts President and CEO, Alan M. Krensky said. “It’s great to see our business colleagues and friends enjoying themselves while supporting such a noble and worthwhile cause.”
Krensky has been involved in supporting the Jimmy Fund by organizing and hosting the tournament, and also by serving on the Jimmy Fund Visiting Committee, for which members are selected to offer input and strategic advice on a range of initiatives at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He is also a Ken Coleman Extra Mile Award recipient. This award honors those individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty by giving freely of their time and energy.
It was a privilege to have Jack Streeter, a 17-year-old cancer survivor from Natick, join us that evening. He is a remarkable young man, who gave a moving speech to our attendees. Colpitts thanks all of our generous sponsors and participants for making our event most successful. We look forward to celebrating our 25th Anniversary Tournament in 2014.
