Dunedin, FL (September 20, 2010) -– Beso Del Sol Resort, a Global Connections Inc. (GCI) resort, located in Dunedin, Florida, was one of the major sponsors for “The Fight for a Cure” night with the Dunedin Blue Jays, the minor league baseball team for the Toronto Blue Jays.
In conjunction with the American Cancer Society (ACS), Bikers Raising Awareness, Blue Jays corporate partners, Beso Del Sol Resort and other local merchants, the Dunedin Blue Jays raised over $5,000 for the Moffit Cancer Center in Tampa and the ACS toward their battle against cancer.
The resort donated a gift basket, which raised $3,200. Gifts included two nights’ accommodations in the Beso Del Sol Resort penthouse, salon and beauty products and restaurant certificates.
Kelli Brazier, Director of West Coast Operations for GCI, and Lou Anne Karlin, General Manager for Beso Del Sol Resort, participated in the opening ceremonies by taking a lap around the Dunedin Stadium with other survivors.
