Sundance Vacations Donates to the RAACE Foundation

WILKES-BARRE, PA--(Marketwire - August 28, 2009) - Sundance Vacations recently donated to the RAACE Foundation. The company made a generous contribution of $3,353 to the organization.

The RAACE (Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere) Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect children against sexual abuse. The RAACE Foundation was created in response to the knowledge that child sexual abuse is tragically destructive, all too common, and totally preventable. Sundance Vacations was contacted by Mr. Brad Brickel, a RAACE participant, to sponsor him in a RAACE fundraiser. Sundance Vacations Founder Tina Dowd presented an idea to give employees the opportunity to donate their employee incentive points to the RAACE Foundation. When announced, Marketing Department employees were eager to donate their points. The employee's V-points were then converted into a cash donation. Sundance Vacations raised a total of 85,504 V-points. The company generously matched the money raised, making the grand total $3,353.00.

"When Tina Dowd asked me to help out in collecting donations for RAACE, I was immediately on a mission to get as many V-points donated as possible. This is something I feel very strongly about. I believe our children should have every opportunity the world has to offer without them ever feeling hindered by abuse. Children are our future and should always feel as though there is nothing they can't accomplish. The RAACE organization is fighting to keep our children safe and should be commended for the work they do. Every dollar raised is one step closer to helping RAACE in their fight. I am honored to work at a company whose owners open their hearts to others in need and are dedicated to providing a better future for our children," said Sundance Vacations Manager Christina Allen.
