For the seventh year, Westgate Resorts and CEO David Siegel are continuing the company tradition of honoring U.S. military personnel and their families by giving away 1,500 free vacations at www.WestgateSalutes.com. Over the past seven years, the company has given away more than 20,000 free nights to veterans and their families. This year, the program is being further expanded to give military the choice of an exclusive weekend in either Orlando or Las Vegas. Starting at 9 a.m. EST on Friday, Nov. 10, eligible military personnel can sign up for a stay during the weekend of May 3-6, 2018, at either Westgate Town Center Resort & Spa in the Orlando area, or Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino on December 8-10, 2017. The 1,500 free vacations are for current active duty military personnel who have served in combat and their families, as well as Gold Star families.
Both special event weekends will feature first-class entertainment – Las Vegas guests will be treated to a special concert by country music legend Travis Tritt.
“Our U.S. military and their families make a constant sacrifice. We hope to give those who have served in combat a chance to spend some quality time with their loved ones,” said Siegel. “Nothing can ever replace the family time that’s lost, but by creating these weekends for them, we’re trying to help make new memories and give these men and women the recognition they deserve.”
In addition to the 1,500 complimentary vacations, Westgate Resorts will offer a special 25 percent savings for rooms across their entire portfolio of 27 resort destinations for all U.S. military veterans valid for travel by 11/10/18. For more information, visit www.WestgateSalutes.com.
