This past October, Southwest Airlines celebrated its longest-standing community tradition with the help of our Employees and Sponsors from all over the country! On October 11, The LUV Classic Golf Tournament & Party demonstrated our commitment to loving People by raising money for children’s charities. With the help of 280 volunteers, 480 golfers, and 1400 Party guests, we were able to donate $534,000 to our 2019 recipients: Children’s National Medical Center, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Tuskegee Airmen Youth and Aviation Programs.
The celebration FORE charity didn’t stop there—the LUV Classic continued giving through our 34 FORE 34. In honor of the Classic’s 34th anniversary, we put our Heart in action by randomly choosing one lucky Platinum sponsor to designate a charity of their choice to receive a $34,000 donation on behalf of the LUV Classic. The winner of this special award chose Make-A-Wish. For more than 34 years, the LUV Classic has supported over 134 charities and invested more than $18 million into life-changing programs and services for children and their families. Together, we are able to make this event one to remember and make a world of difference in the lives of so many.
We take pride in giving year after year to help children and their families and we hope the LUV Classic can inspire you to support your favorite charities during this season.
Be sure to mark your calendars FORE next year’s event on October 2—you won’t want to miss this beloved Southwest tradition! For more information, click on the LUV Classic’s link.
