We hope that we can harness the wave of enthusiasm that came from last year’s participants
Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) April 09, 2015
TrackResults Software will host their Send Me On Vacation charity poker tournament at Marriott's Orlando World Center Resort on April 11th, 2015. The event comes the day before one of the biggest events in the vacation industry—the ARDA Conference.
This year will be the second running of TrackResults’s charity poker tournament, and with a venue like the Marriot World Center, the company is hoping to increase on the success they had last year. “We were excited to see how many turned out in support of the cause last year,” a spokesperson of TrackResults said. “We’re seeing a lot of excitement for this year’s event already, and we expect to see even more individuals and businesses supporting our efforts in Florida. Last year we had ten major sponsors for the event, and we’ve already secured the support of industry leaders for 2015.”
2014’s event raised over $40,000 for Send Me On Vacation (a cancer charity helping breast-cancer patients and their families) and TrackResults is now hoping to increase on that number this year. “The venue this year is prepared to accommodate even more seats than last year’s event,” the spokesperson continued, “so we’re striving to nearly double the contributions this time around.” TrackResults’s spokesperson said that the company’s goal for this year is to raise a lofty $75,000 for Send Me On Vacation’s cause.
All of the proceeds received by Send Me On Vacation go directly to covering the costs associated with airfare, food, and incidentals in order to send a recovering cancer patient to an amazing resort. The trip is funded 100% by the timeshare industry and its vendors. These life-changing, recovery vacations make a huge impact both mentally and physically on the individuals involved. The hardships and poisoning influence of chemotherapy and radiation treatments are such that a period of serious rebound is very much needed. Send Me On Vacation’s efforts help facilitate the rejuvenation that’s required to win the fight for life and survive against breast cancer.
“We hope that we can harness the wave of enthusiasm that came from last year’s participants,” said Sean Nickerson, CMO of TrackResults. “And with our tournament preceding the ARDA conference this year, we expect our cause to benefit from the support and buzz surrounding the start of the conference the next day.”
