SAN DIEGO, CA (May 9, 2013) — Jeanette Bunn, President and CEO of San Diego based Travel To Go has been named Co-President of Send Me On Vacation, which provides much needed vacations to women with cancer who have undergone treatment and need a place to rejuvenate and heal their bodies, mind and spirit. She joins long time board member and founder of the organization Cathy Backus in her co-presidency. Formerly Bunn acted as the Sponsorship Chair, a role she will continue in.
“As a company, our entire mission is to make travel dreams come true!” said Bunn. “The opportunity to help women so much in need of ‘R&R” through Send Me On Vacation is aligned with our corporate, personal and spiritual goals. I am pleased to take on this role and grow the organization to include more sponsors and send as many women on vacation as we possibly can.”
Travel To Go, a family owned business, has a loyal customer base of 50,000+ and has been successfully arranging luxurious vacation resort accommodations for savvy travelers since 1990.
“We realize that the foundation for a productive community stems from involvement,” says Bunn. We are proud to support non-profit organizations and other good causes with both donations of vacations and by actively participating in local and regional charitable projects and events.”
Send Me On Vacation holds annual awareness and fund raising events. The organization’s next annual fund raiser will be held at the Lumeria Maui Resort and Spa on Maui. Other events have included similar Golf Tournament and gathering at the Grand Mayan Riveria as well as a Breast Cancer Awareness Month “Sip for the Trip” in Napa Valley, California last October.
According to the new co-president, the mission of Send Me On Vacation is to use vacation as a transformation from physical healing to emotional healing.” Rejuvenation, renewal and reconnection with loved ones are only a few of the benefits that vacations bring to all of us in life,” she says. “We view the so called ‘journey’ from a holistic perspective and see the need to focus on the emotional healing of the body, mind and spirit.”
