Jupiter, Fla. (PRWEB) July 15, 2012
Robert Allenby, a successful Australian PGA Tour professional and resident of Admiral’s Cove in Jupiter, Fla., has donated $5,000 to the local charity Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper.
Allenby’s selected the organization that supports research into, information about and patients with ovarian cancer to receive his portion of proceeds from The Presidents Cup, which took place in 2011 at The Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia. Players in the Cup do not receive a “purse” for their participation and instead designate their charity of choice to receive funds raised at the event.
Philanthropy is a big part of Allenby’s persona. The four-time PGA Tour winner served as honorary event chairman of the third-annual Bluewater Babes Fish for a Cure Tournament and donated $10,000 toward the cause. Bluewater Babes supports Cancer Alliance for Help and Hope, a nonprofit that provides personal-financial assistance to referred clients with cancer, in addition to H.O.W.
In all, more than $100,000 has been raised through the fishing extravaganza at Castaways Marina, which featured Alan Jackson, the country superstar who owns Jupiter real estate. This year’s Fish for a Cure tournament is set for Oct. 5 and 6.
Allenby has a fishing tournament of his own, and it includes a golf tournament, as well. The annual Bluewater Golf and Fishing Invitational raises money for charities that help special-needs children and children with cancer.
The event includes a gala at the clubhouse at Admiral’s Cove. The 2012 theme had an “Evening Under the Sea” theme.
