Festiva Timeshare Donation Supports Asheville Wildlife Park
Saturday, May 12, 2012
The donation, coordinated by Friends of the WNCNC, supports the center’s long-term vision to turn the Nature Center into a regional showplace in the Asheville, North Carolina area. The donation from Festiva timeshare will be used specifically to help transform a historic and iconic red barn on the center’s property into the park’s new main entrance.
Butch Patrick, president and co-founder of Festiva Hospitality Group says, “We are very excited to be involved with the Nature Center’s improvements and future expansion. We feel that the center is a wonderful attraction for visitors as well as local families here in Asheville, and we are proud to support the expansion and improvement of the center’s education and conservation efforts.”
Patrick adds, “Since Festiva will be bringing visitors to Asheville through our recent management contract with Festiva Biltmore Village and with nearly 100 employees in Asheville who can enjoy the center with their families for years to come, our partnership with the Nature Center is a natural fit.”
