Hundreds of Asheville-area children and their families are having a happier holiday season thanks to Resort Travel & Xchange (RTX) and Patton Hospitality Management (PHM). The two companies teamed up to host a casino-themed fundraising event for their employees and raised $9,350 in donations for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program; specifically, toward any children who were not “adopted” before the Salvation Army’s deadline. The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides gifts to needy children who would otherwise be left out this Christmas. In 2012 The Salvation Army of Buncombe County Angel Tree Program served over 1,000 families and more than 3,500 children across Buncombe County. Angel Trees are placed at area malls and businesses. Each Angel Tag provides the name, age, gender and clothing sizes of a needy child.
