WestJet has announced a three-year partnership as the official airline of the RBC Canadian Open and the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open with a golf-themed fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
This year’s RBC Canadian Open is set to take place at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont., July 20-26, and the 2015 Canadian Pacific Women’s Open takes place at The Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam, BC, Aug. 17-23.
“As an airline that earned its stripes on the leisure side of the business, and golf being a top Canadian leisure pursuit, sponsoring the RBC Canadian Open and the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open is a natural fit,” said Richard Bartrem, WestJet vice-president, Communications and Community Relations. “Getting involved with both tournaments offers a great opportunity to celebrate Canadian’s love of the game, especially since many of our guests fly WestJet to popular golf destinations across our network.”
WestJet is also teaming up with RBC and RMHC, a WestJet Cares for Kids national partner, for a special fundraiser during the RBC Canadian Open.
