DALLAS – November 3, 2016 – Building on four years of success, Hotels.com® today announced the fifth annual Fairway to Wellness Charity Golf Tournament, which will take place on Thursday, November 3. Hosted at the Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine, Texas, the sponsored tournament will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, American Cancer Society and the American Diabetes Association.
The annual tournament has donated nearly $500,000 over the last four years, including a record-breaking $182,000 in donations from last year’s event. All funds donated stay with local beneficiary chapters to directly benefit the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area.
“We’re excited to build upon our success after last year’s record-breaking donations,” said Josh Belkin, VP and general manager, North America for Hotels.com. “Our employees and brand partners have shown overwhelming support for this cause, and we’re thrilled to continue to help raise awareness and funds for such impactful organizations.”
Founded in 2012, the tournament began as the brainchild of two Hotels.com employees who had been impacted by cancer and diabetes. In the years since, employees from the Dallas-based Hotels.com headquarters have volunteered annually to organize the event.

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Since opening more than 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.
