The 1st Aitana Foundation Golf Tournament is coming up this weekend! Hosted at the Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Course in the Riviera Maya on Saturday, March 12, this charity golf tournament will benefit children with cancer and their families in our state of Quintana Roo.

The 1st Aitana Foundation Golf Tournament is a private event organized by Cancun Golf, and it will feature a delicious buffet, premium open bar and some pretty impressive prizes with over $100,000 pesos in raffle prizes. However, the most important reward is supporting the community – all proceeds from this Riviera Maya charity golf event will go to the wonderful Aitana Foundation.


The Aitana Foundation (Fundación Aitana) is a local Quintana Roo organization created to support children with cancer as well as their siblings and families. The foundation has a lovely house called Casa Aitana where the kids can go to play, have fun and leave their cares behind. Activities at Casa Aitana include swing sets, slides, a playroom, movies, arts and crafts, and more, as well as some memorable outings for the kid like field trips to the movies, cenotes, the beach, and even theme parks. (Click here to follow the Aitana Foundation on Facebook to see all the amazing work they do and the fun they have with the kids!) Participation in the upcoming golf tournament would help the foundation to offer even more joy to these small children and their families.
