JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) today teed up its 11th annual Swing for Good Golf Classic and fundraising campaign at Bethpage State Golf Course in Bethpage, N.Y. Since 2008 through its Swing for Good initiative, JetBlue has donated more than $7 million to a variety of youth and education charities. With donations from this year’s campaign, JetBlue is on par to reach nearly $8 million in total funds raised for several non-profit partners. This year’s proceeds will benefit DoSomething.org, First Book and the JetBlue Foundation.
"JetBlue’s mission is to inspire humanity and caring is in our DNA. Our dedication to the communities we serve goes well beyond one day on the golf course,” said Robin Hayes, JetBlue’s chief executive officer. “It’s always fun connecting with our business partners and crewmembers and it’s even more fulfilling when we join together with a common goal – to raise funds and awareness for our favorite non-profits. We’re honored to work with so many likeminded partners to provide much needed funds for charities that are shaping the next generation of leaders.”
