We Have A Lot To Give!
Corporate Responsibility and Social Responsibility are being discussed by many organizations these days. At Hurley Travel Experts we're a lot more than talk. Since our inception 18 years ago, we've been integrally involved in our community both as an organization and as individuals.
2012 Corporate Responsibility
This year Hurley Travel Experts is starting out pledge to community service in our Naples, FL branch office. We are proud to volunteer the time and planning efforts of one of our best and brightest travel agents in Naples, Besty Patton. We’re not the only ones who think a lot of Betsy’s luxury travel planning skills: Betsy has been one of Travel + Leisure’s A-List of Top Travel Advisors for eight years in a row, since 2003!
This year the Women’s Committee for Hope Hospice is celebrating their 10th year of successful fundraising events in Fort Myers, and Hurley Travel Experts could not be more pleased to lend a hand within our new community. One of the premier auction items is The Hemingway Wing Safari
through Micato Safaris. In conjunction with Micato Safaris, Hurley Travel Experts has agreed to donate personalized travel planning for the African Safari with Besty, to make sure that the winner of this silent auction item truly experiences the trip of a lifetime!
