RV Resort Raises Thousands For Vets
On January 18, Golden Village Palms RV Resort in Hemet, Calif., held the year’s first Super Saturday Charity Fundraiser to raise money for disabled veterans. Together with resort guests and community members, Golden Village Palms was able to collect more than $3,200 in just one day, according to a press release.
This Super Saturday event, the first of three this year, included a 5K run/walk, as well as shuffleboard, pickleball, women’s billiards, sand volleyball, and Texas Hold ‘Em tournaments. Prizes were awarded for top finishers in each event.
“Every year, Golden Village Palms selects a charity or cause to fundraise for. This year, we are proud to support wounded and disabled veterans,” said Michael Carle, general manager at Golden Village Palms. “We are so proud of our guests, staff and community for coming together to make this Super Saturday Charity Fundraiser a success.”
In 2013, Golden Village Palms RV Resort and its guests raised more than $7,000 for the Hemet Police Department’s K-9 unit. The donated money allowed the department to purchase a new police service dog.
Golden Village Palms RV Resort is scheduled to host two additional Super Saturday Charity Fundraisers this season. The events are slated for Feb. 22 and March 8. Events are open to the public. More event and registration information can be found at www.goldenvillagepalms.com.
The resort bills itself as the largest luxury outdoor resort in Southern California. Housing 1,019 spacious RV sites, Golden Village Palms RV Resort is a Sunland RV Resorts property.
