Did you know that on June 8th 2012 Rose State in Oklahoma is sponsoring a Relay for Life event? At The Beach Cares knows! Not sure what Relay for Life is? According to the national website Relay for Life is an overnight relay-style event where teams of people camp out around a track and members of each team take turns walking around the track for the duration of the event. There will be food, games and activities providing entertainment and fundraising opportunities, and a family-friendly environment for the entire community. Proceeds from the fundraising events benefit the American Cancer Society.
This year At The Beach Cares has donated two one year memberships to be auctioned off as a fundraiser for this worthy event. At The Beach supports the work of the American Cancer Society and congratulates the hard working volunteers at Rose State for all the work they have put in to promote this worthy event. One thing the At The Beach Cares teams has learned about cancer is that it is a disease that does not discriminate, many members of the At The Beach family have lost loved ones, and this is the reason we support this cause.
If you are in the Midwest City, Norman or Oklahoma City Area and want more information about this event, feel free to check out the national website here. At The Beach Cares encourages everyone to take part.
Last week’s Dine Out for Life Event was a big success for Project Angel Heart. They haven’t shared final numbers yet, but their website is thanking all the restaurants that participated and everyone that ate out to help this cause. At The Beach Cares is excited about the success of this event!
On Thursday April 26th 12 members of the At The Beach Cares team shared a meal at Denver’s Tamayo restaurant. What impressed the At The Beach Cares team the most was that so many other diners were out for the same reasons. One of our team members, who is also a district manager for At The Beach Tanning Superstores, had a conversation with guests at another table while we were waiting. This other group of diners had made a day of it; they had breakfast out in a participating restaurant, took the entire office out to lunch at another restaurant and then were at dinner with a group of friends. How great is that? We also chatted with Project Angel Heart volunteers who were out for the event. When we mentioned that we were part of the At The Beach Cares team, they remarked that they had seen the giant check at the Project Angel Heart offices.
At The Beach Cares members in our Orange County California market and our Wichita Kansas market also participated by dinning out on the 26th as well. Our understanding is that the money raised in other markets is used locally. Good Job supporting a great cause.
This afternoon the At The Beach Cares team is excited to be presenting one big giant check for 25K to Project Angel Heart! This is the result of our March fundraiser. Our At The Beach Tanning members from Tulsa Oklahoma, Wichita Kansas, Orange County CA, Oklahoma City OK and Denver Colorado all participated and helped to raise this money.
Project Angel Heart’s mission is providing notorious, good tasting meals to people facing life threatening illnesses. At The Beach Cares supports Project Angel Heart through our fundraising efforts but also through our employees and employee families who volunteer for Project Angel Heart.
Check back next week for pictures of the At The Beach Cares team and Project Angel Heart and our big giant check presentation.
Don’t forget April 26th is Project Angel Heart’s Dining Out for Life Event. Pick a participating restaurant, go to dinner, and 25% of your bill goes to Project Angel Heart. What a great idea!
Did you know that in the last 12 months At The Beach has donated more than $80,000 in financial gifts, goods and/or services? At The Beach Cares knows!
At The Beach Tanning Superstores have been strong supporters of many causes for years, but in the last year we launched At The Beach Cares to coordinate and facilitate our charitable giving. One of the questions we get asked a lot is how we decide which fundraisers to participate in? Sometimes we get involved because the cause is something that At The Beach Tanning superstores CEO and President Brian Belt is involved in; like Project Angel Heart, Colorado Aids Project, or The Center. Other times the fundraiser is something that has touched members of our At The Beach cares team; the donation to Jennifer Owen’s English classes at PC North. We have also gotten involved in causes that speak directly to the At The Beach Tanning Salon customers; like the breast cancer fundraiser or the donations for the battered women’s shelter in Kansas. The other way we get involved is through our customers.
All year long customers reach out to our corporate offices asking us to get involved in their organizations, or fundraisers. At The Beach Cares LOVES to help out on these things. Right now we are looking at a Relay for Life Auction request, a fundraiser for Teenage Mothers of Preschoolers, the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, and Fashion for a Cause. It is exciting that we may be able to contribute to these wonderful organizations.

Project Angel Heart’s mission is to deliver nutritious means to improve quality of live, at no cost, for those coping with life-threatening illnesses. From their humble beginnings in 1991 to serving their 4 millionth meal last year, Project Angel Heart has come a long way fast. Brian Belt, president and CEO of At The Beach Tanning Superstores remarked last night how important the mission of Project Angel Heart is, and how gratifying it is that At The Beach Cares gets to be part of that.
Over 20 members of the At The Beach Cares team was on hand last night for the welcoming event, along with over 450 other guests at this event. It is exciting to see so many people from At The Beach, from sales staff to district managers, to our accounting department and call center, on up to our president and vice-president on hand for an event like this.
We also had the opportunity to share the results of our At The Beach/Project Angel Heart fundraiser last month. Our At The Beach Tanning Superstores in Oklahoma City and Tulsa Oklahoma, Orange County California, Wichita Kansas, and of course the greater Denver Colorado market raised over $18K for Project Angel Heart, AND the At The Beach Cares team is going to gift Project Angel Heart with an additional 7 thousand to make our total donation $25,000! Check back here for more information when we go back and make our formal presentation in the next few weeks.
We are down to the final days of the At The Beach Cares/ Project Angel Heart fundraiser. The numbers are not all in yet, but At The Beach Cares and At The Beach Tanning Superstores are excited about how successful this fundraiser has been.
Some of our stores have even reported that people are coming in and buying the special even though they are not tanners. How heartwarming is that? At The Beach Cares appreciates the level of involvement our employees and customers have put in on this fundraiser for an excellent cause.
At The Beach Cares about Project Angel Heart. We have less than a week left of our fundraiser for Project Angel Heart! The response from our customers has been truly heartwarming. The At The Beach Cares team wanted to let all of the At The Beach Tanning store customers who participated in this program know what a big difference you made.
Have you heard the Project Angel Heart story? At The Beach Cares has! Volunteers delivered Project Angel Heart’s first meals in 1991, and today volunteers make it possible for Project Angel Heart to serve nearly 800 clients each week.
Project Angel Heart provides nutritious, home-delivered meals, free of charge, specifically prepared to meet the heightened nutritional needs of people living with life-threatening illness. Project Angel Heart relies on a staff of volunteers who work six days per week under the direction of professional chefs to prepare, package, and deliver our meals. Up to 70% of client meals are modified to meet individual dietary needs. Not only does At The Beach Cares support Project Angel Heart financially, but members of the At The Beach Cares team also volunteer their own time to deliver meals. Brian Belt, At The Beach president is also always willing to host Project Angel Heart events in his home.
In 2011, more than 8,000 amazing individual Project Angel Heart volunteers contributed more than 54,000 hours of their time to make sure that our clients receive nutritious meals in both Denver and Colorado Springs. More than 160 volunteer groups volunteered their time in 2011 by decorating meal bags and birthday cards for our clients, delivering meals to our clients, working in Randy’s Kitchen, assisting with special events and much more!

At The Beach Cares is really pleased to see how successful the $9.95 all inclusive free week fundraiser has been in the first 9 days of this month. If you read the At The Beach Cares blog you know that this month At The Beach Tanning Superstores are offering one week all inclusive for $9.95 and then donating the $9.95 to Project Angel Heart.
Not familiar with Project Angel Heart? They are a worthwhile organization that provides nutritious meals to people in their time of need. At The Beach Cares is a big supporter of this organization and we are happy to be able to offer this special to our customers and show our support.
Care to guess how many of the $9.95 Project Angel Heart weeks have been sold in just 9 days? 10 a day? 15 a day? Wrong! At The Beach Tanning Superstores have done 558 of these all inclusive weeks as of today and raised $ $5,552.10 for Project Angel Heart. PLUS we still have 22 more days of the month!
Keep up the good work and thank you for your support.
What did you have for lunch? Imagine for a minute that you (or a loved one) were so sick that you were unable to cook for yourself. Now imagine that someone brought them a nutritious meal in their time of need. That is the mission of Project Angel Heart, supplying nutritious meals to people with life threatening illnesses.
At The Beach Cares supports Project Angel Heart year round, as readers of this blog know. In the month of March At The Beach Cares is giving the tanners of At The Beach tanning salons to show their support as well. At The Beach Tanning is offering a $9.95 all inclusive week of tanning that allows customers to tan in each of our 5 levels of tanning beds AND the UV free versa. At The Beach is going to donate that $9.95 directly to Project Angel Heart to help fund their continued good works. How amazing is that?
This At The Beach Cares offer is good at any At The Beach Tanning location in Tulsa or Oklahoma City Oklahoma, Wichita Kansas, Orange County California, and the greater Denver Colorado area.
