When it comes to philanthropic giving, Bluegreen is more than committed. In fact, charitable giving and support are integral parts of the company’s culture. Bluegreen believes supporting non-profit organizations is an important way to give back to the communities where the company does business and to the people and organizations that patronize Bluegreen.
One cause close to Bluegreen is Christel House
, an organization dedicated to helping impoverished children around the world break the cycle of poverty, realize their hopes and dreams and become self-sufficient, contributing members of society. Christel House has done much to support children around the world since its 1996 inception, and Bluegreen is proud to say the organization has been its Charity of Choice since 2000.
Bluegreen contributes to the organization through voluntary payroll deductions, golf tournaments, raffles and resort activities. 2011 marked a great year for Bluegreen’s efforts to support Christel House, thanks to several projects and events. Bluegreen raised over 17,000 by selling Christel House coffee at its resorts across the country. And the annual Christel House Charity Golf Tournament, held at 5 separate Bluegreen destinations, raised over $90,000 for the organization!
We here at Bluegreen are proud to contribute to such a great cause, and look forward to future endeavors to support Christel House!
