Fundraiser Cruise Raises Funds for Emergency Flights

Mercy Flight Central FundraiserCanandaigua, NY (3/31/2011) - Taking a winter cruise might be a favorite way for some upstate New Yorkers to escape snow and ice in favor of sunshine and beaches. And this past winter, some attendees on a Caribbean cruise had their good times help benefit an organization that saves lives every day.

A partnership between DePrez Group of Travel Companies and Royal Caribbean International benefited Mercy Flight Central, a non-profit organization that provides critical-care air medical service, 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The “Cruise for Life” earned $1600 for the organization, a check for which was presented last Tuesday.

The seven-night eastern Caribbean cruise took travelers to multiple ports including St. Thomas and St. Maarten.

DePrez has announced it plans on making the cruise an annual event.

The DePrez Group of Travel Companies, founded in 1929, is the largest independent travel management organization in the 5-county Rochester area. The group includes DePrez Travel Bureau, Inc (a member of the invitation-only VIRTUOSO network), Just Cruises, Inc. (one of the top 50 cruise-only agencies in North America), DMI (DePrez Meetings and Incentives), Charlie Cheap Seats, Whitaker and DePrez Travel Partners, LLC. Wish Upon A Star Vacations, Inc., and Precision Planning.
