Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation Capital company, presented a $9,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County at the U.S. Open Polo Championships final on Sunday, April 24 at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington.
The donation is part of Sentient Jet’s Soar and Score Challenge, which the company launched earlier this year as IPC’s Exclusive Private Aviation Partner.
“Sentient Jet is dedicated to giving back to the community,” said Andrew Collins, president and CEO of Sentient Jet. “We strongly believe in the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County’s mission to promote the educational, vocational, health, leadership and character of today’s youth. We are honored to be able to support such an incredibly important cause.”
As part of Sentient Jet’s Soar and Score Challenge, a spectator was chosen to try his or her hand at scoring a goal during the halftime divot stomp at each Sunday polo match during the season from Jan. 3 through the April 24 final.
Sentient Jet pledged to donate $1,000 to charity on behalf of each contestant with enough prowess to succeed, presenting a total of $9,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs and $7,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on behalf of 16 winners for the season.
“We are very excited to have Sentient Jet be one of our corporate supporters,” said Jaene Miranda, president and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. “Their generous donation for our Wellington club will help us continue to change children’s lives and provide a safe environment for the children of our community.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County serve more than 8,000 children ages 6 to 18 at 13 locations countywide. For more info., visit www.bgcpbc.org or call (561) 683-3287.
