Golf Classic & Charity Auction

Since 2007, the WFG Golf Classic & Charity Auction has been a chance for WFG executives, associates and product providers to come together to help raise funds for the WFG Charitable Trust. The annual event, held at some of the most picturesque resorts in North America, offers an exclusive opportunity to challenge some of WFG's most serious — or not so serious — golfers while also helping to raise funds for a number of worthy causes. Each year, associates make this event successful by participating in a foursome, donating an auction item, and/or bidding for exclusive items and experiences. Fantastic items are always featured in the auction, and previous years have included the following:

  • A trip for two to China with EVC and WFG Board of Directors member Xuan Nguyen
  • Attendance to the NYC Marathon as a guest of race sponsor ING
  • A trip to the amazing Calgary Stampede to enjoy the event in the famous Lazy S's Executive Suite
  • A golf outing with Joe DiPaola, President and CEO of World Financial Group, Inc.
  • An autographed, framed photograph of Transamerica-sponsored golfer Zach Johnson
  • A week at La Salamandre, WFG's exclusive luxury villa on the island of St. Martin
