Orlando, Florida, January 19, 2018 – (INTUITION) Resort Travel & Xchange; the North Carolina-based timeshare and vacation ownership exchange company finished its 2017 Year of Giving philanthropic plan on a high note raising close to $25,000 at its annual Casino Night event held last month.
RTX, along with Patton Hospitality Management (PHM), Resort Hospitality Solutions and Zealandia Holding Company got together to roll the dice all for a good cause. For five years in a row, RTX has celebrated the end of the year with its Casino Night fundraiser. The award-winning company was able to raise $24,438 for the Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministries’ (ABCCM) Christmas Angel Program. The amount of money raised for the local charity exceeded last year’s grand total of $19,000, making the 2017 Casino Night one of the most successful charity events RTX has produced since the company was established in 2012.
The ABCCM Christmas Angel Program provides gifts and much needed aid for children in the greater Asheville area. The nonprofit works with many local organizations such as the Steadfast House, Military Families Resource Center, Supportive Services for Veteran Families, and several schools in Buncombe County. The money that RTX raised, with help from employees of VacationCondos.com, TSA Choice, and Festiva Development Group, was used to purchase holiday presents for 100 children.
“It is so exceptional that we receive time during work to give a little something to those in need of some extra help. It is definitely a great reflection of our company’s mindset and all of those who participate,” said John Catton, RTX employee. Philanthropy and supporting the local community has always been important for the timeshare exchange company. In 2017, RTX employees volunteered at the Ingles/ Eblen Tools for Schools Drive, sponsored the Root Ball which benefits Asheville GreenWorks, and supported Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, a no-kill animal shelter and 83-acre sanctuary.
