Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced its Hawaii resort, Pono Kai, will welcome guests who wish to attend the Hanapepe Relay for Life, a fundraiser at Hanapepe Stadium that will take place Saturday, May 7, 2011. The stadium that will host the American Cancer Society Relay for Life Event is approximately 20 miles from the Bluegreen resort Pono Kai.
The American Cancer Society began its Relay for Life initiative in 1985 in efforts to raise awareness and raise funds for the fight against cancer. The Relay has since become the world's largest movement to end the disease. Every year, over 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities across the United States, as well as communities in 19 other countries, gather to take part in this overnight rally. Since its 1985 inception, Relay for Life has raised over $3.5 billion in the fight against cancer. Pono Kai will be participating with the Relay Team (Pono Kai O'hana), with a fundraising goal of $2,000.
Bluegreen's resort in Kauai, Hawaii, Pono Kai Resort, sits on 13 acres of Coconut Coast. Onsite amenities include a putt-putt course, tennis and volleyball courts and of course, a beach. Pono Kai offers Bluegreen vacationers studio, one- and two-bedroom vacation villas to enjoy during their Hawaii vacation.
"We here at Pono Kai are happy and honored to host guests who wish to participate in the Hapapepe Relay for Life event," says Peter Sit, General Manager of the Bluegreen resort in Hawaii. "We strive to provide great accommodations within our resort that will lead to a great experience with Pono Kai, and hope to provide relay walkers with a welcoming and comfortable vacation villa before and after the event."
