Wounded Warrior Project Receives Donation of 100 Vacation Packages at Premier Resort in Cabo
Tuesday, 06 January 2009
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors, announces today a donation of 100 vacation packages at a premier beach and golf resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, from CB Richard Ellis (CBRE), the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm.    The resort donation results from CBRE’s decision to forego its 2008 Recognition Conference, and donate the accommodations to those wounded in war instead. CBRE has been holding its Recognition Conference to honor its top producing U.S. professionals annually for more than 20 years.   Chris Ludeman, CBRE’s President of Americas Brokerage said, “Our company has been privileged with notable success over the years. Out of this success, we are eager to give back to those who have sacrificed for others, and can think of no group more worthy of this donation than Wounded Warrior Project and the veterans it supports who have selflessly protected us, our families and our freedoms.”   John Melia, Founder and Executive Director of Wounded Warrior Project, added, “Wounded Warrior Project was born out of compassion — one wounded person helping another. WWP has grown into the nation’s foremost advocacy group for injured veterans, and has done so with the help of those companies and individuals that have shown us the same compassion we exhibit toward one another. We are honored and grateful to CBRE for its generosity in gifting us this experience.”   CBRE will gift an additional 125 packages to other deserving charitable organizations. Each of these packages consists of a three-night stay, $500 food and beverage allocation and two spa treatments. Philanthropic organizations interested in this opportunity should contact Mr. Ludeman directly atchris.ludeman@cbre.com no later than January 15, 2009.   The accommodations at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, are available until November 30, 2009, subject to availability.   About Wounded Warrior Project   Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors.
