ARDA Send Me On Vacation Poker Tournament

The 3rd Annual Send Me On Vacation Poker Tournament Sends 50 Breast Cancer Survivors On Healing Vacations.
TrackResults Software and SendMeOnVacation.org opened the 49th ARDA (American Resort Development Association) industry conference this year where almost 200 timeshare industry professionals went “All In” for a great cause: to help cancer survivors heal from the effects of battling breast cancer. The three-hour tournament hosted by TrackResults, the timeshare industry’s only software analytics company, will benefit Send Me On Vacation, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charity. The event generated over $63,000 and the funds will be used to send over 50 women on empowering vacations to heal their lives after fighting cancer.

“These vacations are transformational and TrackResults is the foundation of our giving base so we can make the magic happen.”
-Cathy Backus, Founder & President
