Corolla, NC (PRWEB) June 09, 2011
As a small business, Corolla Classic Vacations believes that their responsibility is not limited to their business plan, but also includes making a daily difference for those less fortunate. Company staff, with the support of the founders, homeowners and guests dedicate much time to issues and causes that affect us all. The Corolla Clubbers Relay for Life team spends numerous hours raising money for the American Cancer Society through an annual golf tournament as well as the annual Relay for Life event. In addition to dedicating time and special fundraising activities, Corolla Classic Vacations donates $5 of every pre-reservation fee to a collection of worthwhile charities including the V Foundation for Cancer Research and the ALS Foundation. A special collection of $3650 was sent to Physicians for Peace to assist the victims of the 2010 Haiti Earthquake.
Corolla Classic Vacations recently announced the Outer Banks Relief Foundation as a new charitable organization they support. The foundation’s mission is to assist citizens in the Outer Banks’ communities “who are burdened with financial difficulties due to a debilitating disease or illness, or a personal tragedy or crisis to themselves and/or their families.” Since its inception in 2004, the foundation has provided over $500,000 to over 260 unfortunate local citizens that were stricken with cancer, serious blood or nerve disorders, spinal injuries or MS.
The next Outer Banks Relief Foundation fundraiser is a special “Christmas in July” event to take place July 6-8th. Participating restaurants, businesses and banks’ staff will wear Rudolph Red Noses to help spread the word of the foundation and donations can be made on site. Corolla Classic Vacations staff will be wearing red noses that weekend! Future 2011 events include 5K Runs, a Triathlon, and a Marathon to take place this fall. Donations to the Outer Banks Relief Foundation can be made as a memorial gift or as a gift in honor of a special occasion. Donations are accepted on the Foundation’s website at http://www.outerbanksrelieffoundation.com or by calling the office at 252-261-2004.
