Sundance Vacations Provides the SPCA of Luzerne County With a Monetary Donation

WILKES-BARRE, PA--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - Sundance Vacations provided $1300 to the SPCA of Luzerne County in honor of Make a Difference Day.

Normally it is not a good idea to scare consumers; however, Sundance Vacations employees held a Haunted House "Sundance at Sundown" at the company's corporate headquarters on October 22nd, October 23rd, and on the annual Make a Difference Day, October 24th. Make a Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others -- a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. It is an annual event sponsored by USA Weekend magazine.

The entry fee was $5. Sundance Vacations also provided baked goods to all guests in efforts to raise more money. All proceeds raised were donated to the Luzerne County SPCA (Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). "Consumers who don't know Sundance Vacations may be skeptical or even misguided by thinking that Sundance Vacations is a scam," said Sundance Vacations Founder Tina Dowd. "But, our employees illustrate who we are and what we believe in by their actions every day. This charity project fits two of our core values: to create fun and to give back. We're proud of Sundance Vacations' reputation in the community," added Dowd.

According to the Executive Director of the SPCA of Luzerne County, Vince Sweeney, the SPCA does not receive any state or government funds. All operating funds come from the generosity of the community.

In 2008, Sundance Vacations partnered up with Habitat for Humanity for Make a Difference Day. The company raised $2,830 companywide for local habitats in their community.
