Little Pink Houses of Hope Comes to OC
It`s amazing what a little sand & salt water can do for the soul. Just stand on the beach, look out on the vast ocean, and somehow life is back in perspective. This coming week, Vantage will have the honor of giving this much-needed beach experience to some families who need it all the more. We are teaming up with Little Pink Houses of Hope, a non-profit organization whose mission is to give rest, recovery & reconnection to families affected by breast cancer through week-long beach retreats. During the retreat which is the first of its kind in Ocean City families will get to spend quality time together, as well as with other families who`ve battled breast cancer. Shared meals, fun activities & outings are being planned to make it special & relaxing.
Vantage Owners & Local Businesses Rally Support
Of course, none of this could be possible without the generosity of our homeowners, who willingly gave up their vacation rentals (and a week`s rent) for the visiting families. We are overwhelmed and humbled by how quickly and wholeheartedly these Beach House Angels responded – many of whom have been affected by breast cancer in some way and simply want to give back. In addition, many local businesses & organizations have come forward to donate their resources, such as Viking Golf Amusements, Wobbly Wheel Boardwalk Bicycles, BJ`s on the Water, Bull on the Beach, Walk on Water Stand Up Paddleboard Company, Oceanic Fishing Pier, Dana Marie Photography, Red Door Community Center, and Shore Community Church. Even Vantage will be providing passes for families to visit Assateague Island, as well as grocery store gift cards so that Little Pink Houses of Hope organizers can make meals and stock the kitchens with food during the week.
If you`re in town May 31-June 7, be on the lookout for Little Pink Houses of Hope yard signs posted in front of some of the Vantage Vacation Rentals!
