More than 50 players from across Latin America and the gaming industry spectrum participated in the inaugural “JCM Global LatAm Golf Classic.”
The tournament took place at The Biltmore Golf Course Coral Gables as part of the first Juegos Miami, the dedicated business event for the Pan-Latin American and Caribbean gaming industry.
Staged as a benefit for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, the event raised $20,000 for the charity. The event was inspired by gaming icon Jens Halle, a major advocate for gaming in Latin America and the Caribbean.
“We were thrilled to welcome players from across Latin America and the Caribbean to the inaugural JCM Global LatAm Golf Classic. We are grateful to the players and to our sponsors for their incredible support. We are especially grateful to Clarion Events for joining the event as our platinum sponsor, ensuring this first tournament was a success,” said event producer and JCM Global Vice President of Marketing Tom Nieman.
“Juegos Miami was a successful and highly enjoyable launch event and on behalf of my colleague, Courtney Muller, who headed-up the team at Urban Expositions, I would like to extend sincere thanks to all of our supporters, speakers, attendees and sponsors, not least JCM Global,” said Kate Chambers, Managing Director of the Gaming Division at Clarion Events. “The JCM Global LatAm Golf Classic was a triumph and I’m absolutely delighted that it succeeded in raising valuable funds for St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and, in the process, demonstrating the socially responsible and caring nature of this industry.”
