Bluegreen Vacations, (Bluegreen timeshare) has partnered with the American Red Cross in a fundraising effort for Hurricane Sandy storm relief. The Boca Raton, Florida based vacation club has donated $5000 to the American Red Cross and is matching associate contributions dollar-for-dollar up to $5000 from now until November 30, 2012.

President and CEO of Bluegreen Vacations, John Maloney, announced the plan earlier this week saying, “Many Bluegreen associates in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast took great precautions before the storm to protect our resort owners and guests, even as they took steps to safeguard themselves and their loved ones.” Maloney adds, “They showed great care and compassion. Now it’s our opportunity—and responsibility—to show compassion.”

Bluegreen Vacations Resorts Weather the Storm

Hurricane Sandy directly affected only a limited number of Bluegreen timeshares, some of which are resorts owned by Bluegreen Vacations and other which are affiliated with Bluegreen Vacations. These include:

  • Atlantic Palace in Atlantic City, New Jersey
  • Patrick Henry Square in Williamsburg, Virginia
  • Shenandoah Crossing in Gordonsville, Virginia
  • The Soundings in Dennis Port, Massachusetts
  • The Breakers in Dennis Port, Massachusetts
  • The Manhattan Club in New York City

The American Red Cross

So far, the American Red Cross has provided more than 23,000 overnight shelter says since October 26, two days before Hurricane Sandy made landfall. With over 60 million people directly impacted by this storm, an area the Red Cross describes as being about the size of Europe, the real damage to lives, businesses, and the economy is hard to estimate. Long after the rest of the country has stopped talking about the situation, people win the storm damaged areas will still be struggling to put their lives back in place.

Contributions to the American National Red Cross are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. The Red Cross’ tax identification number is 53-0196605. For more information, visit
