THE CONNECTION IS CLEAR BETWEEN MANN TRAVELS AND THE COMMUNITY
Longstanding Partnership with Levine JCC and Levine Children’s Hospital Continues
Mann Travels once again teamed up with Disney to sponsor the Levine Jewish Community Center (LJCC) Kids Triathlon. The proceeds from the sixth annual event – June 4, 2017 – benefit Pediatric Rehabilitative Services at Levine Children’s Hospital (LCH) and the Adaptive Sports & Adventures Program (ASAP). The top fundraising participant – Mary Cate Kiser, who raised $2,650 – was awarded a trip to Disney World for her family!
Mann Travels has a longstanding history of community outreach that specifically coincides with the mission of the LJCC and Levine Children’s Hospital. Owners of Mann Travels, Maxine & Gary Silverstein, are actively involved in the Charlotte Jewish community and the agency’s involvement in the triathlon since its inception has helped strengthen its connection to the LCH. All of Mann Travels’ nine offices in the Carolinas participate in charitable programs in their respective communities.
This year, 200 children, ages five to 14, registered for the Kids Triathlon, raising money, alongside corporate sponsors, towards a collective goal of more than $150,000. This annual event is about more than just good, fun, athletic competition – it is about giving back. It is about children of all ages and cultural backgrounds swimming, biking, and running to help other children working to get back to doing those same activities. When all was said and done, the fundraising for the event was a huge success, with more than $180,000 given to LCH and ASAP!
Mann Travels was joined by other sponsors such as UTC Aerospace Systems, Ally Financial, Bissell, Rodgers Builders, Bank of America, Foundation for the Carolinas, LabCorp, Julie & Howard Levine, Hugh McColl, Parent Financial, Lori & Eric Sklut and Wells Fargo, to name a few. Travel agents were on hand to share information on exciting destinations and great vacation offers, but more importantly – show support for the cause and the kids.
Established in 1979 with local ownership in Charlotte, North Carolina, Mann Travels has been serving travelers throughout the Carolinas with personalized service for more than 35 years. The secret to its longevity and success is a strong team of professionals which is committed to obtaining the best value for your travel dollar. Mann Travels vacation specialists are Disney experts and can help families navigate an otherwise complicated booking process with so many hotel and ticket program options at Disney World.
The LJCC, LCH and ASAP thank Mann Travels and Disney for their ongoing support of the Kids Triathlon and hope everyone will support and patronize the event’s generous sponsors. Visit Mann Travels at http://www.manntravels.com/.
