The 13th Annual Coast Hotels Shuhachi Naito Golf Classic, held July 9 at Coquitlam’s Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club, raised $50,000 for The Salvation Army.
Coast Hotels is proud to contribute to The Salvation Army as its charity of choice because it believes everyone deserves a good night’s sleep and a good meal. The hotel group supports various Salvation Army shelter and meal service programs in the communities where it operates. ALS BC has a personal connection for Coast Hotels, as its former senior executive Shuhachi Naito – after whom the tournament is named – lost his battle to the disease in 2014.
“Bringing our community together to support two exceptional causes is so rewarding,” said Robert Pratt, president of Coast Hotels. “Coast believes in being an active part of our communities, and our annual golf tournament is one way we help make a difference,” he added.
"The funds received from Coast Hotels provide significant support to many of our local ministry units. Coast shares our philosophy that everybody deserves the dignity and comfort of food and shelter, and knows how critical these programs are," said Lt. Colonel Larry Martin, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army British Columbia Division.
Thank you, Coast Hotels, for your generous support of The Salvation Army and the work we do.
