Las Vegas-based Diamond Resorts InternationalĀ®, a global leader in the hospitality and vacation ownership industries, has announced that the company will match all new donations made in 2017 to the Diamond Resorts International Foundation, a recognized 501(c)(3) organization, up to $1 million. Funds raised will provide assistance to those affected by the recent violence in Las Vegas, and to team members and communities impacted by hurricanes Irma and Maria.

ā€œDiamond Resorts InternationalĀ® is committed to serving and supporting the communities where we live and operate. The recent natural disasters and the senseless act of violence that occurred this past Sunday in Las Vegas have certainly affected us all,ā€ said Michael Flaskey, CEO of Diamond Resorts InternationalĀ®. ā€œWe hope the funds raised can provide necessary support and help to bring some normalcy back to the lives of those affected during these unimaginable times.ā€

Donations can be made via check and sent to the attention of Keri Serrano at the Diamond Resorts International Foundation at 10600 West Charleston Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada 89135. If desired, donors can identify which relief effort they would like funds to be designated to in the memo section of the check. Diamond Resorts team members in the U.S. can also choose to donate via a one-time or reoccurring payroll deduction.

Diamond Resorts International Foundation is a 501(c)(3) exempt public charity. The Foundation has raised more than $2.3 million for Florida Hospital for Children since 2013, with help from the companyā€™s signature golf tournament, the Diamond Resorts Invitationalā„¢. In 2014, the Foundation was also able to provide disaster relief to distressed employees in the Los Cabos, Mexico, area following widespread destruction caused by Hurricane Odile, and more recently to those affected along the east coast of Florida by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.
