This year's Financial Services Industry Sunshine Classic raised a record-breaking £344,500 for handicapped and underprivileged children at a recent charity golf tournament at Wentworth.
Another £21,000 was raised through auctions and raffles at the event's celebrity dinner which meant that 20 Sunshine Coaches could be bought for the children.
The auctioning of two tickets for the American Grand Prix donated by Legg Mason Investors and the Jordan racing team raised £16,000.
This is the fourth year that the financial services sector, City companies and celebrities have joined up with the Variety Club of Great Britain Golfing Society.
This year has been the most successful for raising funds.In 1998 and 1999, the event made £50,000 in each year, which was doubled to
£100,000 last year.
This year's winning team was BFS Investments, which included the company's managing director Tony Reid and TV celebrity Roger de Courcy, best known for his TV sidekick Nookie Bear.
Celebrities taking part included TV personality Jimmy Tarbuck, gameshow supremo Bruce Forsyth and comedian Ronnie Corbett.
IFA Events managing director and Financial Services Industry Sunshine Classic co-founder Geoff Chown says: “History was made at this year's event as we have never before being able to donate 20 Sunshine Coaches.”
