Boys and Girls Club Nassau County and R.A.I.N.-Animal Rescue, recipients of admissions from Travel Agency's recent show.
The ladies at THE TRAVEL AGENCY thank everyone who attended or assisted with their recently concluded “Test Drive the World Luxury Travel show”. As a result of the great turn out, the Agency, which has a reputation for lots of charity work, was able to present The Boys and Girls Club of Nassau County Foundation with $2,800.00 toward their much needed facility for the Fernandina Club that has started construction recently at the Lime Street location.
The Agency also donated $280.00 to R.A.I.N. to help with their wonderfully successful RAIN Train project that helps find homes for our oversupply of homeless animals to areas that need adoptable animals! The Shrine Club has always been an inspiration to us. They have so much fun while raising the funds to support their Burn Center.
The “girls” at the agency had a wonderful time at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island introducing some of their favorite clients and their friends to twenty-six of the agency’s favorite travel suppliers from around the world! If you were not able to join us this year, they want you to watch for the “save the date” announcement for 2012! The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island is already watching for an optimum date for next year when the Travel Agency will re-introduce some of the same suppliers with newly developed travel products and new suppliers from different exciting places as well!
For their clients, the agency will once again hold a Travel Photo Contest next year, promising it to be bigger and better than this year’s event! So here is the advice, think camera on your travels and start setting aside those spectacular shots and watch for the instructions later in 2012 to submit them for more great prizes! If you haven’t already, go to http://the-travel-agents.com/winners-in-the-first-annual-photo-contest/ to see all the winners and their prizes!! Scroll to the bottom to see some pictures of the show itself! Click on the photo contest link to see all of the great entries!

Thanks for posting this, Johan! We really did have a great time raising funds for these two great community organizations!! It is our hope that more businesses might find opportunities like this to showcase their services or merchandise while raising funds for their favorite non-profits!
Ange, I definitely admire your agency’s approach to sustainability and giving back. It is definitely an example for the future of charity.
