The National Timeshare Owners Association today announced the winner of their 2015 Community Service Award.

Exploria Resorts and Summer Bay Orlando were chosen by the NTOA for their generous donation of 11 acres to South Lake Hospital.

“The NTOA’s Executive Team was moved by this donation and the fact that Exploria’s team cared deeply about the health and well-being of the community.  This land donation will allow South Lake Hospital to broaden the scope and reach of their good work”, said Gregory Crist, NTOA’s CEO.

Paul Caldwell, Summer Bay Orlando’s President said, “On behalf of the Scott family and the entire Exploria Resorts One Team, we are honored to accept this community service award in recognition of the generosity of our founders, Joe and Loretta Scott.  Part of our Mission Statement is “to be a positive influence in the communities in which we do business.” It is gratifying to receive recognition directly related to our goals.”

This is the second time that Summer Bay Resort has been recognized for their community service.  The NTOA’s first presentation came about after the resort’s staff went over and above the call of duty in response to a natural disaster.  The 2014 Community Service Award was given to Raintree Resorts.

Official presentation of the award was held at the 6th Annual Timeshare Owners Regional Summit held on Sunday, February 21st in front of 150 timeshare owners and representatives from several companies in the timeshare community.
