NEW ORLEANS, March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — This exciting event was held this past Sunday, March 26, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans during the ARDA World annual convention. ARDA puts on the timeshare industry’s largest annual event, hosted in a different US city each year. The city of New Orleans was the perfect spot for this conference, as well as the poker tournament, as it provided a fun and exciting atmosphere. «It was a lot of fun to compete in the tournament, and also such a great cause. We are so happy to help SMOV,» said Jack Keefe, General Director at Tripps Travel Network. In additional to being a tournament sponsor, Keefe placed third in the tournament, taking home a Mexican/Western Caribbean cruise package as a prize.

Tripps Travel Network prides itself on providing top-notch customer service and creating unforgettable family vacations for its members. In addition to helping fulfill members’ requests, assisting charity organizations through donations and sponsorships each year is something Tripps executives have made a personal goal. Send Me On Vacation is a wonderful organization that sends breast cancer survivors on vacation after they’ve undergone cancer treatments. These lifesaving treatments are quite taxing both physically and mentally, and a vacation to rejuvenate the body and soul is a great way for these women to recover, and most importantly spend quality time with their families. The nature of Send Me On Vacation’s mission makes the vacation industry an ideal partner, with vacation fulfillment providers like Tripps Travel Network helping to sponsor survivors through the donation of vacation weeks, and raising funds through events like the poker tournament in New Orleans this past week, which raised over $78,000.

«It is important to give back, and with the money raised in New Orleans, over 20 families will be able to take a vacation. That’s really special,» continued Keefe. After completing another successful ARDA World Convention, many ARDA attendees look forward to future annual poker tournaments, as a highlight to their convention experience. It is a great networking opportunity and a truly fun event, with a cause that no one can deny is amazing.
