VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fobi AI Inc. (FOBI:TSXV) (FOBIF:OTCQB) (the "Company" or "Fobi"), an industry leader in harnessing AI and data intelligence to enable digital transformation, is pleased to announce that its digital ticketing technology will be utilized for the second consecutive year to support the Big Wheel Charity Golf Classic tournament. Hosted and organized by Canadian country singer Aaron Pritchett and the Big Wheel Fund, a foundation created by Aaron to give back to local communities across Canada, the annual tournament aims to raise funds for various charities on Vancouver Island. In its inaugural event in 2022, the Big Wheel Charity Golf Classic raised over $73,000 in charitable donations. This year, proceeds from the tournament will support the Nanaimo Ladysmith Schools Foundation.
Following the success of the Company’s partnership with Big Wheel for its first annual charity golf tournament in 2022, Fobi will once again provide its digital ticketing technology to deliver an enhanced attendee experience at this year’s event on Thursday, September 14, 2023, at the Cottonwood Golf Course in Nanaimo, B.C.
Players and attendees can conveniently download their event passes to their mobile wallets before the tournament to ensure easy access to their tickets. With Fobi's SmartScan software, which is compatible with any mobile device, organizers can quickly and efficiently scan attendees’ passes upon arrival. Through the wallet pass, Big Wheel organizers can also send regular updates to attendees before, during, and after the tournament, enabling a direct means of communication for delivering valuable information such as event schedules, raffle prize announcements, sponsorship shoutouts, live event updates, reminders, and post-event communications. Fobi’s wallet pass technology will also be used to create and distribute additional event passes that include dinner vouchers, tickets to evening entertainment, and entries for sponsored contests and giveaways.
Aaron Pritchett, Co-Founder of the Big Wheel Golf Classic, states: “Giving back to the community who has supported me throughout my career is so important to me. Knowing that charitable organizations are benefiting from our events makes it all worthwhile, and companies such as Fobi AI are integral in making all of this possible.
Having Fobi AI on board not only supports the cause with its digital ticketing platform and technology, but they are also a major contributor to our fundraising efforts as well. Not only have they been extremely helpful, but they also continue to lend a kind, heartwarming hand in what we set out to do: help those in need.”
Rob Anson, CEO of Fobi AI, states: “Our dedication to creating a positive and lasting impact in our communities is a fundamental part of Fobi's mission. We couldn’t be happier to continue our partnership with Aaron Pritchett and the Big Wheel Fund, and once again play an important role in supporting local charities and driving meaningful change through this year’s Big Wheel Charity Golf Classic.”
