Last Tuesday, September 11, 2018, the City joined the Garden Grove Tourism Promotion Corporation (G.G.T.P.C.) for the Garden Grove Tourism Cares event. The G.G.T.P.C. awarded a total of $100,000 to four, local, non-profit organizations with $25,000 sponsorships each. The organizations were: Boys and Girls Clubs of Garden Grove; Garden Grove Community Foundation; Helping Others Prepare for Eternity (H.O.P.E.); and Orange County Food Bank, a division of Community Action Partnership of Orange County.
At the event, Garden Grove Mayor Steve Jones said, “Garden Grove is known for its community spirit, volunteerism, and compassion for those less fortunate. The organizations being honored tonight are dedicated community partners who commit their time and effort to improving the quality-of-life in Garden Grove.”
The presentation was held at the Anaheim Marriott Suites, in the Grove District-Anaheim Resort. In attendance were local and state representatives, board members from each recognized organization, City officials, and G.G.T.P.C. members.
Jim Durslag, G.G.T.P.C. President, said, “As a valued partner to the City, the Garden Grove Tourism Promotion Corporation looks for every opportunity to give back to the community. Through sponsorships to local non-profit organizations, G.G.T.P.C. can effectively make an impact in Garden Grove.”
The G.G.T.P.C., a California non-profit mutual benefit corporation, promotes Garden Grove’s tourism district, the Grove District-Anaheim Resort. In addition, G.G.T.P.C. constructs and maintains the business conditions of hotels, visitor accommodation facilities, and other services, activities, and programs that promote and encourages tourism within Garden Grove.
