Southeast Publications Donates $20K to KOA Care Camps
Southeast Publications, the leader in guest guide production for RV resorts, campgrounds, marinas, recreational facilities and travel industries, held its 2012 Annual Spring Meeting at the Emerald Desert RV Resort in Palm Desert, Calif.
Almost 100 sales associates from across the U.S. and Canada attended. The associates hold an auction at the Spring and Fall Meetings to raise funds to benefit the Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) Care Camps non-profit organization that helps send kids with cancer to special camps where they can enjoy camping and recreation experiences.
"Southeast Publications has supported the KOA Care Camps program for the last 18 years; we believe in the benefits of camping and in giving back to others," said Wally Warrick, CEO of Southeast Publications. "Camping is a fun activity and what a better way to help these children than giving them a chance to go camping."
The 2012 Spring Auction was kicked off with a donation from Sunland Resorts for $1,000; Signature Resorts donated $1,000 and RMS North America donated $1,000. Auction items included donations from sales associates and raised $10,238. Warrick matched the funds raised for a total donation from Southeast Publications of $20,238. Southeast Publications has raised and donated over $400,000 to KOA Care Camps.
“Our founder, Peter Warrick, chose KOA Care Camps to be the focus of our belief in giving back and we’ve continued with that tradition since 1994," said Wayne Morris, vice president of Southeast Publications.
