OASIS Travel Network – the independent contractor division of Smart Travel Group – has announced a partnership with the Tyler Robinson Foundation to host ‘Dining for A Cause’ during its ninth annual conference, November 11 – 13, at the Delray Beach Marriott. The event, slated for the evening of November 12, from 7:30 p.m. – 10 p.m., will raise funds for pediatric cancer patients and their families, across the country. OASIS Travel Network chose the foundation to support Shannon Robinson, a member of Signature Travel Network and the mother of 16-year-old Tyler Robinson, who lost his life to brain cancer on March 4, 2013.
“During this year’s conference, we want to encourage our agents to support each other, and we felt that partnering with the Tyler Robinson Foundation was the perfect way to inspire them,” said Kelly Bergin, OASIS Travel Network president, in a written statement. “We were all touched by Shannon’s story, and this is our way of helping her and honoring the memory of her son.”
Conference attendees participating in the event will be able to enter a raffle contest for the chance to dine with a major supplier in the industry. Raffle ticket proceeds will benefit the foundation to help offset out-of-pocket costs for the families of pediatric cancer patients.
