Darktrace Partners with Spirit Airlines for Charity Open

San Francisco
March 4, 2020

Darktrace, the world’s leading cyber AI company, has today announced it has partnered with Spirit Airlines, a Darktrace customer, to become one of the sponsors of its annual golf event, The Spirit Open.

The fourth annual golf event took place last Thursday and Friday in Parkland, Florida, and raised more than $1 million for nonprofit organizations this year alone, nearly matching the total amount raised at the past three tournaments combined. Darktrace’s contribution to this year’s event will directly benefit a range of charities, including the American Red Cross, the International Women’s Aviation Association, the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals, and K9s for warriors – among other nonprofits and community organizations across the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean.

“We are thrilled to add Darktrace as one of our sponsors again as we put on yet another incredible event, benefitting so many valued charities across the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean,” commented Lanie Morgenstern, Spirit Airlines Manager of Corporate Social Responsibility and Culture. “Darktrace is a valuable cyber security partner for Spirit Airlines, and we are excited to continue our work with them in both cyber defense and our fundraising initiatives.”
