Preferred Travel of Naples’ three owners, Olga Placeres, Kristina Gear, and Kody Gear, had the chance to assist support the Maui wildfire relief efforts while attending the Signature Travel Network Owners Conference on the island of Maui this past week.

In the course of the conference, Preferred Travel of Naples and other attendees engaged in a day of service to the island, where they volunteered their time to sort donations and create personal hygiene kits to be distributed to the Maui Food Bank. Moreover, attendees brought much-needed supplies, totaling 7,000 kilos, from the mainland to support the recovery efforts.

The conference, happening on the Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort in South Maui, raised over $400,000 and counting in donations through Signature’s Travel Elevates silent auction and fundraisers. The conference’s opening day saw representatives from the Hawaii tourism industry deliver a united message of the importance of supporting the recovery efforts. The encompassing areas of the affected area in Maui are set to officially reopen on October 8, in response to an announcement by Hawaii Governor Josh Green. Nevertheless, Lahaina itself will remain fully closed to the general public until further notice. Considering this, Signature Travel Network has emphasized the importance of responsible and respectful tourism to the island.

Preferred Travel of Naples recognizes the importance of tourism as the inspiration of Maui’s economy and encourages visitors to contribute to the recovery by bringing their tourism dollars back to the island. While certain areas should be inaccessible resulting from the tragedy, there are many resorts, restaurants, and activities which might be open for business and able to welcome visitors.

“Maui needs our support to get better, and by responsibly visiting the island, we are able to contribute to its revitalization,” stated Kody Gear, Managing Partner at Preferred Travel of Naples. “The Aloha spirit is resilient, and we invite everyone to embrace it as they explore the breathtaking fantastic thing about Maui.”

Founded in 1984, Preferred Travel of Naples offers comprehensive worldwide travel services with offices in Naples and Bonita Springs. For more information, call 239-261-1177 or visit www.preferrednaples.com. ¦
