Resort Travel & Xchange (RTX) has confirmed its ACE level sponsorship for the 5th Festiva Charitable Fund Golf Tournament, to be held on October 4, 2016, in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.
RTX offers its members an industry leading vacation exchange platform that provides a variety of benefits and travel options such as low exchange fees, up to a four-year deposit window, reservation protection, and discounts on different travel options such as hotels, car rentals, air travel, restaurants and more. Additionally, the company also provides its partner resorts and management companies with customizable options and solutions, based on their needs and the needs of their customers.
Created in 2006, the Festiva Charitable Fund was designed with the intent of providing permanent charitable resources for all the communities where its companies and employees are located. Its primary focus is on the education of the children in its communities as well as the goal of eliminating poverty within those same communities. The charitable fund has also been used to respond to extraordinary global events and provide humanitarian aid to those affected.
This will mark the second year the exchange company has participated in the charity golf tournament hosted by the Festiva Charitable Fund. As part of its Ace Sponsorship, the company will receive four playing spots in the golf tournament, souvenir photos of its team and will be recognized throughout the event within several promotional items. In addition to the sponsorship, RTX will also be donating a week’s vacation that will be included as one of the prizes for the raffle held during the event and can be used at any of the properties within the company’s expansive network.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this event, especially knowing that our contributions will go toward not just one but several organizations and causes that are important to communities where many of our members vacation on exchange to Festiva properties,” said Justin Hunter, vice president of operations for RTX.
To date, over $100,000 has been gifted through the charitable fund to several different organizations throughout all of the communities where its employees live and work. The organization also encourages employees to give back to their communities by volunteering their talents and time to help local organizations within said communities.
This year will mark the 5th Charity Golf Tournament the Festiva Fund has held, with the last tournament held in 2014 and raising nearly $80,000 for charity. The 2014 tournament brought together over 40 corporate companies and had over 130 golfers participating throughout the event.
RTX will actively participate in the event with volunteers helping out throughout the duration of the tournament and a team of four employees participating in the actual tournament on behalf of the company. The team will incorporate a mix of RTX employees and employees from affiliate companies, and will consist of Justin Hunter, Vice President of Operations for RTX, and Jeramie Arlington, Senior Operations Manager for RTX, along with Kevin Blocker, Association Compliance Administrator for Zealandia Holding Company, and Adam Brannon, Chief Technology Officer for Resort Hospitality Solutions.
