Orange Lake Resorts, home to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations® brand, donated $18,560 to Orlando, Florida-based charity Noah’s Light Foundation. The funds were raised through employee efforts at the company’s 26 resort properties throughout the United States. The mission of Noah’s Light Foundation is to find a cure for pediatric brain cancer by supporting visionary doctors in pediatric oncology, funding new research in the field, raising awareness of the cause, and enriching the lives of the brave children struggling with this disease.
“I’m so proud of our team’s generosity and efforts to support critical research into pediatric brain cancer,” said Tom Nelson, President and CEO of Orange Lake Resorts and a Noah’s Light Board Member. “Our company values putting others’ needs first, which aligns perfectly with this important, local group’s goal to support families impacted by this terrible disease.”
“On behalf of the Noah’s Light Foundation, I would like to say how very thankful we are for the entire team of Orange Lake Resort who have again shown their generosity toward helping children and families battling pediatric brain cancer,” said Amber Larkin, Founder of Noah’s Light and Noah’s Mom. “We are honored to be the recipient of the heartfelt philanthropy shared by this wonderful group of people. Those who participated in this effort across so many properties should feel proud to know that 100% of their donation will be going directly to a research program that is making huge strides in the area of immune-based therapies for pediatric brain cancer. This donation continues our effort to provide hope to families who have none and together, we NOAH cure is possible!”
