Robert Allenby


Robert focuses his charitable pursuits working with the Patron of Challenge. Spurred by the memory of a 13-year-old childhood friend who died of leukemia, Robert works with the Patron of Challenge to help provide children living with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders a chance to interact with other children in similar circumstances in different settings. The Patron of Challenge is a non-profit organization established in 1983. It gives children the opportunity to interact with others in similar circumstances. The organization offers services for families 365 days a year, which include camps, family activities, hospital and parent support, art and music therapy, financial support, holiday accommodations and an extensive ticketing program. Robert has devoted much of his spare time to Challenge. His dedication has earned him the respect of his co-workers, the deep gratitude of parents and most importantly for him the love of many kids whose lives he has touched.

For the past 23 years, he has hosted the Robert Allenby Golf Day and Gala Dinner in his native Australia, raising upwards of $26 million. His efforts have also expanded to his adopted home of Jupiter, Fla.,where he has hosted a three-day BlueWater Golf Invitational that raises money for children with special needs and cancer in Palm Beach County.

In honor of Allenby’s charitable commitment, the Aussie is the recipient of the Golf Writers Association of America’s 2014 Charlie Bartlett Award presented by Aberdeen Asset Management.
