The Corporate Jack
Launched in 1996, The Corporate Jack has had many handles in its time including Telstra Corporate Cup, Nissan Corporate Cup, Optus Corporate Cup and Diabetes Corporate Cup such is the way of the corporate world today. I make no secret of the fact I am actively seeking a new naming rights sponsor.
Since its inception, this event has raised in excess of $2.5 million in funding towards two very worthwhile charities in diabetes and junior golf.
It has always been my philosophy that if we can get kids off the streets and involved in a sport or an activity accompanied by a sensible diet, the chance of dodging many of the obstacles in today’s society are increased.
Funds provided to Diabetes go directly towards increasing awareness, appropriate treatment and research for this disease which affects one in four Australians and is now recognized as a pandemic the world over.
Golf is a game for life but more importantly it is a great conduit, given it is a discipline – to teach young people honesty, integrity and consideration for others – all great life-style skills.
Look forward to seeing you all at Jack’s Point, Queenstown, New Zealand – one of the best venues in the country . I’m sure you will have a great time while networking and raising valuable dollars towards these two understated charities .
