Wild Dunes Resort Introduces Charitable Meeting Offer

Benefiting Military Families through Operation R&R

Under the limited-time offer, Wild Dunes Resort will donate one family vacation to Operation R & R Charleston for every group reservation it receives totaling $25,000 or more in room revenue. Operation R & R Charleston helps families reunite and reconnect after members of the military return from long deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Made possible in partnership through the visiting group meeting at Wild Dunes Resort, benefiting families will receive: a five-night stay at the Resort; daily breakfast; bike rentals and complimentary tennis court access; four tennis clinic passes; unlimited golf on the Resort’s two Tom Fazio-designed courses; one family excursion; and unlimited kids access to Resort recreational activities. Beyond this, Wild Dunes Resort will hold 2% of the total value of the group’s master bill as resort credit, to be put toward the family’s resort expenditures courtesy of the group.

“We’re consistently hearing from meeting planners who are looking to tie in charitable components into group meetings at Wild Dunes,” said Frank Fredericks, Managing Director, Wild Dunes Resort.  “Through this offer, groups can leave feeling good about their organization, and they can rest assured that the family who benefits from this offer will indeed find themselves in a better place at Wild Dunes thanks to their goodwill.”  

In order to qualify, groups must book by February 29, 2012 for a meeting of $25,000 or more in room revenue (before taxes and fees) held between January 1 and December 31, 2012.  Offer is based on availability; restrictions apply.

“Long and frequent deployments have become routine for many military service men and women, and returning home can be challenging and stressful,” said Dr. Susan Johnson, CEO, Operation R & R Charleston. “We’re so grateful to have community partners like Wild Dunes Resort who are both able and interested in helping these families reintegrate and ease into family life after deployment.”

About Operation R&R
Operation R&R Charleston is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide opportunities for service men and women returning from deployment to reconnect and strengthen family relationships through a complementary vacation in the Charleston area.  This is accomplished through the generosity of property owners who donate their vacation homes and business partners such as restaurants and tourist attractions that offer significant discounts to visiting military families. The program was founded in 2008 in Hilton Head, SC and has since provided over 700 military families with a well-deserved and much needed vacation.  Visit Operation R&R Charleston Online and on Facebook .
