Business leaders from throughout Central Florida gathered yesterday at the Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort for the 9th Annual RCI Christel House Open, benefitting Christel House International.
About 130 participants came together for the golf tournament and luncheon in Orlando, FL, which was held in conjunction with 14 other locations during a four-week span over three continents as a global fundraising initiative for Christel House.
“We are so thrilled. RCI and Orange Lake Resort have been part of this tournament since the very beginning. This is our ninth year and every year they keep taking it up another notch and another notch. Just a fantastic day,” said Cheryl Wendling, Senior Vice President, Christel House International. “It’s the volunteers in all the different locations that make it happen. We try to give them as much support as we can but if it wasn’t for our volunteers, our site hosts and our sponsors, this wouldn’t be possible.”
