Ensemble Travel Group reports that this year’s charitable giving was a fundraising “trifecta” at its recent conference as attendees and Ensemble staff supported three Colorado non-profit organizations.
Ensemble cited several achievements, including its staff partnering with host property The Broadmoor and its management staff to build 75 bikes in about 75 minutes for Christmas Unlimited, a non-profit that provides gifts for children of local families in-need.
Through individual contributions and an Ensemble match, nearly $6,000 was donated to the Colorado Red Cross in support of this summer’s wildfires and flooding. Just prior to the Ensemble conference, the Red Cross had opened shelters for evacuees after heavy rains caused major flooding in four Colorado counties.
Ensemble also said $85,000 was raised for the Colorado chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation through a raffle and live auction.That’s an increase of $10,000 from last year’s total. In the last three years at conference, Ensemble Travel Group’s charitable efforts have raised more than $220,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
