Alaska Charity events

From Ketchikan and Juneau to Anchorage, the Aleutians, Nome and Barrow, Alaska is home to more than 4,500 charity and nonprofit organizations. As tourism is Alaska’s second largest industry, it’s not surprising that the Alaska visitor industry and Alaska Airlines spearhead most of the states fundraising activities.

Annual events include a sumptuous “Taste of Alaska” and family fun filled Charity Walks and golf tournaments.

Alaska Visitor Industry Charity Walks

From the website:

“The Visitor Industry Charity Walk (VICW) is an annual event which celebrates giving through a fun, festive community event that raises money for non-profit agencies throughout the state of Alaska. Since the first walk in 2000, over one million dollars have been distributed to Alaskan charities.”

Armed Services YMCA Golf Tournament

From the website:

“Our annual golf tournaments are held in both Anchorage and Fairbanks and help us raise funds to provide 30+ programs and services for military stationed in Alaska. Each year corporations sponsor military teams to compete against their corporate teams for 1st place bragging rights. Entry fees are per person or per team and include shared golf carts, gift bags, complimentary hot coffee and muffins, beverages, individual and team prizes, a complimentary BBQ and a raffle ticket to win Alaska Airlines Tickets.”
