Ensemble raises record $259,000

Ensemble Travel Group’s seventh annual charity event to benefit Make-A-Wish raised an all-time high $259,000 in total donations during the organization’s annual international conference held last month at the Hyatt Regency Dallas at Reunion. Through a raffle and live auction held during the Ensemble Circle of Excellence Gala on Oct. 18, conference attendees gave generously to this worthy cause that has given hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions since 1980. In the last seven years, Ensemble members and partners have helped raise a total of more than $870,000 for Make-A-Wish. Also in Dallas, an additional $50,000 was raised during the live auction to support hurricane relief efforts through several of Ensemble’s cruise partners’ foundations.
