Bluegreen Corporation and Bluegreen timeshare recently hosted the 14th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Bluegreen timeshare, a recognized leader in vacation ownership marketing, sales, and hospitality, raised more than $58,000 through the event to benefit JDRF and Christel House Charities.

Played at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, (Florida) not far from the corporate headquarters of Bluegreen timeshare, the event was a four-person scramble with  prizes awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place foursomes with the lowest gross scores, as well as longest drive, closest to the pin, and hole in one.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of this year’s tournament,” said Ellen Devine, executive assistant to the CEO of Bluegreen, and head of the company’s Bluegreen Employee Action Resource (BEAR) Team. We truly have a good thing going in this annual tournament. Philanthropy is in the company’s DNA and it shows in the associate’s participation in events like these.”

Twelve associates from the Bluegreen timeshare office in nearby Boca Raton office volunteered at the Tournament. Across the US, several Bluegreen timeshare resorts host local golf tournaments to benefit Christel House. Included are RCI Christel House Open Tournaments scheduled for:

  • Sunday, June 9, Daytona Beach, Florida
  • Monday June 10 Murrels Inlet, South Carolina
  • Monday June 10 Hollister, Missouri
  • Monday June 10 Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Becky Arnett, Director of Timeshare Development for Christel House says, “We are so grateful for the generous support Bluegreen provides to Christel House. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with a number of Bluegreen Associates on fundraising initiatives, including the annual RCI Christel House Open. The Bluegreen Associates take their commitment to Christel House seriously and work hard to ensure that each tournament is a resounding success for the sponsors and players and especially in the funds raised for our Christel House students.

Arnett goes on to add, “This is the 11th year of the tournament, and I am still surprised at the amount of creativity and effort that go into the planning and implementation of each tournament. Each tournament has its own unique personality and traditions that the players look forward to each year – from the Casino Night and auction at the Boca Raton tournament to ‘Harold’s mom’ – the mother of the Daytona GM who has a home at the golf course and hands out snacks and cold drinks to the players. All of those extra touches ensure that the tournament is a success. You can’t ask for a better corporate donor. It truly is an honor to be one of Bluegreen’s charities of choice. I am also grateful that several Bluegreen Associates have taken the time to visit our learning centers and meet the very children that you help support. Thank you Bluegreen!”
