The social responsibility group of ARDA-WIN Advantage, a networking organization for vacation ownership professionals, held local fundraising events around the country throughout October. Send Me On Vacation was selected as the charity of choice for their extraordinary efforts to provide restorative vacations to breast cancer survivors.
Grand Pacific Resorts was a proud sponsor, hosting a fundraiser at Carlsbad Seapointe Resort in combination with other initiatives across the nation, from California and Nevada to cities in Florida and Indiana. In addition to providing the venue and photographer, Grand Pacific Resorts donated resort vacations to help raise money.
Collectively the local groups and ARDA-WIN raised a total of $13,000 for Send Me On Vacation.
Renee Wagner, director of creative services at Grand Pacific Resorts and chair of the social responsibility group leading the efforts for ARDA-WIN said, “Each member of ARDA-WIN was essential in making this campaign a successful fundraiser and generating awareness for an important charitable organization aligned to the mission of our industry. Our coordinated efforts across the country demonstrate that when we come together and stand united in our purpose that we can make greater impact on the lives of those in need.”
