Mondial Assistance and the Computerized Airline Sales and Marketing Association (CASMA) announced today that a reception held at CASMA’s fall conference has raised enough money for Miracle Flights for Kids to provide transportation for eight children in need of life-saving specialized medical treatment. The event marks the first time a fundraiser has been held at a CASMA conference. Miracle Flights for Kids is a Nevada-based non-profit charity focused on transporting seriously ill children to the treatments and evaluations they need.

“We are pleased to be the beneficiaries of the first ever community outreach reception at a CASMA conference,” said Vanessa Moreno, director of public relations at Miracle Flights for Kids. “And we’d like to thank CASMA and Mondial Assistance for joining our other travel-industry supporters in helping us provide a valuable service to children in need.”

The funds were raised through sales of raffle tickets during a one-hour reception at the Monte Carlo Resort in Las Vegas, Nev. Raffle prizes, donated by Mondial Assistance and other CASMA members, included two tickets to wherever jetBlue flies, two Flip Ultra HD camcorders and free stays at the Monte Carlo hotel, the Crowne Plaza San Jose del Cabo and the Hyatt Regency Montreal.
