RV Parks' United Way Efforts Lauded
Motorcoach Country Club and Desert Shores Motorcoach Resort, both of Indio, Calif., hosted a fundraising event and auction to benefit the local office of United Way on March 19, The Desert Sun, Palm Springs, reported.
More than 250 residents and guests of the two RV resorts attended the event at Miramonte Resort in Indian Wells and helped raise $200,000.
The premier sponsor was Newell Coach Corp., whose generous contribution made the event possible.
There were three silent auctions prior to the dinner and a live auction called during dinner.
Auctioneer Joe Demarte kept the pace lively and entertainment was provided by trumpet soloist, Johnny Zell, along with orchestra musicians.
“It was an incredible evening where the generosity was overwhelming and heartwarming,” said Kay Ladner, general manager of Motorcoach Country Club. “Residents of these high end motorcoach resorts often joke about being ‘trailer trash with cash' — and they proved it on that Saturday night."
