Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced that its Colorful Ways to Play (CWTP) program donated more than $17,000 to local and national charities. The money was raised in conjunction with CWTP events at Bluegreen resorts between March-July, 2011.
"Colorful Ways to Play is very important to our resort," said Dauna Epperson, Activities Director at Laurel Crest. "The great thing about this program is that each resort can choose its own charity. In June, Bluegreen's charity was National Wildlife Foundation. We chose to support something a little closer to home--The Appalachian Bear Rescue."
CWTP features nine months of themed activities at participating resorts throughout the year. The events give friends and family members a chance to have more fun at the resorts, meet other guests and become better acquainted with the resort and staff members. In January, Bluegreen owners can take part in games of chance and skill. February is heart awareness month and March brings mystery to Bluegreen resorts. April is all about going green and May celebrates the arrival of spring. June is Dairy Month and milk moo-staches can be seen on the lips of the young and young at heart. The grills fire up in July for all-American hot dogs and the glitz of Vegas shines in August. September brings out the competitive nature of friends and family with Olympic games while October gets scary with fun Halloween celebrations. From popcorn to bubble wrap, November is all about things that go pop on Bluegreen vacations. In December, the wonders of winter warm the spirit.
"Bluegreen owners are instrumental in this success of this program, and they continue to show us their true colors by participating in these fun activities," said Barney Barber, Senior Vice President, Resort Operations - Resorts Management.
