Exotic Travelers proudly sponsored Send Me On Vacation’s annual poker tournament hosted by TrackResults. Taking place at the New Orleans ARDA World convention in March 2017, the poker tournament raises money to send a breast cancer survivor on a much needed vacation once the physical and emotional drowning has settled.
The ARDA World Convention hosts thousands of timeshare and membership industry professionals, where conferences and the charity poker tournament take place, in addition to the impressive Award Gala Dinner where industry developers are awarded with prestigious accolades. Exotic Travelers took home one on behalf of Palafitos Overwater Bungalows at El Dorado Maroma within the Circle of Excellence selection
Send Me On Vacation believes that a well-deserved holiday will help rejuvenate the mind and body of the cancer victims, and will help them recover in a much more relaxing atmosphere. In partnership with many vacation providers, including Exotic Travelers, Send Me On Vacation can sponsor survivors by raising funds. At the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, $78,000 USD was raised.
February’s survivor to be sent on a vacation is Kathi Stannard, who expressed her gratitude to Send Me On Vacation and the various sponsors through a letter.
“You are a blessing to all breast cancer fighters and survivors. […] It makes a tremendous difference in our lives and restores our faith in mankind. […] God bless everyone who cares enough to make these vacations possible. I never thought I would feel such happiness and joy again knowing each day I’m fighting so hard to survive. Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity of love!”
This is the second year that Exotic Travelers participates as a sponsor by giving away an all-inclusive one-week holiday at the poker tournament. We wish Kathi a joyful recovery and an amazing and relaxing vacation.
