ResorTime Raises $10,000 to the Pro Player Foundation
Wednesday, July 8, 2015
ResorTime, the rental division of Grand Pacific Resorts, recently made a generous donation to the Pro Player Foundation (PPF), benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The timeshare rental group presented a check for $2,300 at PPF’s Flavors of the Gaslamp event on June 13th, 2015.
Pro Player Foundation helps to raise money and awareness for underserved children, through a variety of events and programs. The PPF works with professional athletes to promote community and philanthropic events. This particular event was to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
In addition to the check, ResorTime also participated in the event’s live and silent auctions, which generated over $8,000 for the cause. ResorTime supported these auctions by donating vacation packages in Mexico, Hawaii, Napa, Palm Springs, Southern California, and Lake Tahoe.
Renee Wagner, RRP, Director of Marketing for ResorTime shared,
“We’re proud to count athletes such as Earl and Tyler Campbell as friends and partners in the fight against MS. Our core purpose is ‘Enriching Lives by Creating Experiences Worth Sharing.’ There are few experiences more enriching than helping students who thought higher education was out of reach due to MS.”
The donation from ResorTime is the result of the organization’s First and Ten promotion. Through this program, ResorTime offered to donate 10% of bookings to the Pro Player Foundation when guests used a special promo code. In return, these guest also received 10% off the cost of their rental.
Previously, ResorTime had donated a check for $2,500 to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society through their charity, beCause Destination Matters. This program allows ResorTime members and guests to vote for their favorite nonprofit to receive a donation on behalf of the company.
Tyler Campbell of the Pro Player Foundation said, “ResorTime has been a longtime supporter of our cause. Their generous contributions empower us to make a difference in the lives of countless college students with MS and their families.”
