Shell Vacations Club is already known for bringing you great family vacation destinations. But you may not be aware of how much the people at Shell Vacations Club are doing for local communities.
President and Chief Operating Officer Tracy L. Sherles, works to support the Community Partners’ Autism organization. In her hometown, which has a rate of children born with autism that is higher than the national average, Sherles has organized a fundraising golf tournament and silent auction for each of the last six years. This year, more than one hundred golfers played in the fundraiser tournament, raising over $10,000 for the local nonprofit organization.
In addition to sponsoring the tournament, Shell Vacations Club provided prizes for the auction including two one-week vacations at a selected Shell Vacations resort.
Company Chairman and CEO, Sheldon H Ginsburg, helps Shell Vacations Club generate support for Canine Companions for Independence ® (CCI) and Guide Dogs for the Blind. Ginsburg says, “Besides always wanting to assist those not as fortunate as us, my wife and I are animal (and specifically dog) lovers. We actively support these charities as they provide support to both of those passions.”
On October 1, the Guide Dogs for the Blind will host their ninth annual Canine Heroes Wine Auction. Shell Vacations will host event attendees at their Vino Bello Resort® in Napa, California. The proceeds from this event help support annual veterinary costs of $3 million for 4,200 program dogs and puppies.
These two commitments are only a small part of what Shell Vacations Club is doing to help important causes on a local and national level.
