Cruise for a Cause, formed in 2001, is partnering with the Bergen-Hudson Red Cross in support of the communities which it serves. Cruise for a Cause helps organizations raise money for their missions by taking supporters on a cruise vacation. Participants receive special charity group rates from major cruise lines that include a $200 per cabin donation while offering savings of up to 52 percent off published rates.
Other local organizations have benefited from Cruise for a Cause, including The Morristown Soup Kitchen, Friends of the Montville Library, and the Shriners Children's Hospital in Springfield, MA. The next cruise date is March 5th, 2006, aboard the New Norwegian Dawn. This luxurious eleven-day cruise leaves conveniently from New York City and cruises to ports in the Western Caribbean. Starting price is $994 per person (inside cabin) includes deluxe accommodations, gourmet food, fantastic entertainment and much more. With each cabin booked a $200 donation will be given to the Bergen-Hudson Red Cross Chapter.
Business people will be able to attend several seminars given by leading professionals on a variety of subjects from "Beyond Networking" to "Marketing Under Budget" while the ship is at sea. There is no additional charge to attend the seminars and there could be a tax rite-off for attending.
