Orange Lake Resorts, home to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand, presented a check for $303,000 to Give Kids The World at its recent sales awards event – The Sammy’s. The company’s sales team raised $203,000 during its 2017 Give Kids The World campaign, and Orange Lake Resorts provided an additional $100,000 as part of its five-year commitment to help construct GKTW’s 53,000-square-foot Towne Hall building.
Current and prospective vacation owners at the company’s seven sales centers were introduced to the charity and asked to support the company’s efforts by providing a donation to Give Kids The World Village, a 79-acre, nonprofit resort for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
“Our team, owners and guests have big hearts and are passionate in their support for charitable organizations such as Give Kids The World,” said John Sutherland, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Orange Lake Resorts. “We love supporting the village and the families that visit. Our goal is to continue to grow these efforts to help children and families fulfill their dreams and experience the magic that is Orlando.”
Holiday Inn Club Vacations has supported Give Kids The World since its inception, providing more than $2.5 million in financial support. In addition, the company supports the charity through fundraising events, team member volunteer efforts and title sponsorship of the Hope In One Celebrity Golf Tournament scheduled for April 30 this year.
