Travel Agency Franchise Dream Vacations Shows Support at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Pop Up Party

June 07, 2018 // // Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - In the spirit of giving back, home-based travel agency franchise Dream Vacations joined forces with its partners Celebrity Cruises and Beyond Proper to give away a three-night Bahamas cruise and a $100 Beyond Proper gift card as part of a Pop Up Party for the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

On February 14, 2018, 14 students and three staff members were fatally shot and seventeen others were wounded in one of the deadliest school shootings in the United States. The City of Parkland along with the community wanted to come together to give these students a fun event at the end of a heartbreaking school year. The Pop Up Party was held at Pine Trails Park and included free food from local food trucks, music by DJ Laz and the Caribbean Cruise raffle.

“This tragedy hit very close to home as many of our employees and their families live in the Parkland community,” said Drew Daly, general manager of Dream Vacations. “We are honored to be part of this event that will bring a little joy to the students who have been through so much pain this year. Thank you to our partners Celebrity Cruises and Beyond Proper for their generous cruise vacation and gift card giveaway.”

Maria Carreras, a 19 year-old Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student was the lucky winner of the Celebrity three-night Bahamas cruise and a $100 Beyond Proper gift card.
