The Jimmy Fund also helps golf clubs raise funds through its Clubs Fight Cancer program. Clubs can sponsor tournaments in honor of someone affected by cancer or include charitable gifts in registration fees for special events.

Clubs can also plan putting contests, organize golf marathons for their professional staff, or host silent auctions of donated items. To learn more about supporting the Jimmy Fund, visit www.jimmyfund.org.

As the holiday season approaches, many individuals and families begin making plans to visit loved ones across the globe. While you arrange your trip, you may find yourself dreading the process of traveling during such a busy time of year. With a few tips, however, you can make holiday travel much easier:

1. Know when to travel – Not only is it important to refrain from booking tickets on the days immediately surrounding holidays, but it is also crucial that you travel at the right time of day. Leaving as early or as late as possible will help you avoid the biggest crowds when flying or driving.

2. Be careful when packing – Traveling for the holidays means that you will need to find room for presents in your luggage. When flying with gifts, wait until you arrive to wrap them in case travel officials need to inspect them more closely. If you plan on giving expensive presents, then you should keep them on your person to avoid losing them along with your bags.

3. Download a helpful app – For a little extra travel assistance, you can download any number of apps that will make your trip easier. When flying, GateGuru will give you regular updates about your flight and airport congestion. On the road, the Good Hands Service application can help if you become stranded and need help.
