The annual tournament has donated more than $725,000 over the last five years, including a record-breaking $255,000 in charitable contributions from last year's event. All funds donated stay with local beneficiary charities to directly support the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area.

"This year we continue the great work our brand partners and employees began six years ago and we're thrilled to help raise awareness and funds for these three organizations that are making life-long advances in health and wellness," said Josh Belkin, VP and general manager, North America for the Hotels.com brand.

Founded in 2012, the tournament began as the brainchild of two Hotels.com employees who were impacted by cancer and diabetes. In the years since, employees from the Dallas-based Hotels.com headquarters have volunteered annually to organize the event.

About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Since opening more than 50 years ago, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.
