Each year, as the holiday season approaches, many people join in the spirit of giving and act to help others who may be less fortunate. In this fourth clip of our mini-series "Getting to know Sergio Garcia," we learn from Sergio that he works year round on charity efforts – and not just during the holidays.

This year, Sergio took advantage of two great golfing events to raise funds for charity. He organized and hosted a Pro-Am charity event in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland with 17 of the world's best golfers – just less than 20 hours after The Open Championship in Scotland. This first ever staging of the event brought together a who's who of golf to raise a significant amount of money for the Children's Cancer Foundation in Basel. Additionally, in this clip Sergio also tells us how the Asociación Espanola Contra el Cancer (AECC), the largest cancer charity based in Spain, benefited from funds raised at the Valderrama Spanish Open, which was hosted by his Sergio Garcia Foundation.
