On November 11, 2011 Emerald Desert RV Resort & Mike Thompson RV partnered to honor and raise donations for the Wounded Warrior Project for this special holiday.
The Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit organization that raises and awareness and money for the needs of injured service members. It is the organization’s vision, “to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.”
Emerald Desert RV Resort and it’s guests contributed to this cause at a special fundraiser organized by the socially conscious resort. The Resort guests offered $2000 in donations to the cause. Over 160 American and Canadian attendees gathered around a mimosa breakfast to honor our wounded soldiers. Like the organization touts on it’s website, the worst casualty is being forgotten. The event kept awareness alive with music and Veteran speaker. Professional bugler form the Heat Wave Jazz and Show Band played and long time resident guest, Pete Van Vechten from 29 Palm Marine Corps, addressed the crowd on behalf of past wounded warriors.
Michelle Graham, the Activities Coordinator and Group Sales Manager of the property, presented the donation check in person to the Wounded Warriors Project at the San Diego headquarters on November 28th. Photographs from the check presentation can be viewed in the slideshow below.
“The event was a great success and we greatly appreciate the generosity of our resort guests. We also extend a special thanks to the Pleasure Way RV Club for their contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project,” says Graham
The Emerald Desert RV Resort is enthusiastic about doing its part for the community and hopes to continue to give back through local events. Look for news about the Spark of Love Toy Drive the resort is hosting in December with the local fire department.
