Coast Hotels hosts 21st Annual Golf Classic
Coast Hotels Limited, a fully owned subsidiary of APA Hotel Canada, Inc. hosted the 21st Annual Coast Hotels Shuhachi Naito Golf Classic in July of this year. STAY Magazine was in attendance.
The tournament was supported by over 25 partner vendors, a fully sold-out field of golfers, and a dinner attended by over 180 guests, raised valuable funds for two charities this year: the ALS Society of BC and the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre.
The event raised over $80,000.00 this year and has surpassed $1,200,000.00 in funds donated to charities since its inception.
“Giving back to the communities we live, work, and operate in is woven into the fabric of Coast Hotels and aligns closely with our values,” says Mr. Jin Sasaki, president of Coast Hotels. “The opportunity to support the valuable and important work of each of these organizations is a privilege.”
Nina Krieger, executive director of the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre noted that the donation will help fund their ongoing commitment and ability to develop and deliver Holocaust-based anti-racism education programs across British Columbia.
Coast Hotels has a very personal connection to the ALS Society of British Columbia, as Shuhachi Naito, a former executive and long-time Coast ambassador lost his battle with ALS in 2014.
“It was through Shu that we came to know of the important work that the ALS Society of British Columbia is doing to support medical advances and to assist ALS patients and families with impactful programs and services”, stated Mark Hope, senior vice president development for Coast Hotels.
Next year’s tournament will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2024.
