MOAB, UT - Sage Creek at Moab, a Utah-based luxury resort property, announced today that it is partnering with political commentator Glenn Beck to raise $1 million to fight child sex trafficking. The partnership is part of a fundraising giveaway dubbed the Sage Creek Drive in the Desert. In light of this and other new partnerships, Sage Creek at Moab also announced that it will be extending the duration of the drive to allow for increased participation.
Beck has long been a vocal proponent of Operation Underground Railroad, an organization that runs sting operations to apprehend traffickers and free their victims. Operation Underground Railroad is one of two nonprofits that will benefit from the fundraising effort. The other, Child Liberation Foundation, raises awareness and provides funds to vetted partner charities for the rescue and aftercare of child trafficking victims.
Sage Creek has organized the drive as part of its philanthropic efforts, and invites the public to donate. Donors will be entered into a prize drawing to be held on May 25, allowing new entrants an extra month to participate after the original April deadline. Prizes include a 2019 Jeep Wrangler (Moab Edition) and a five-night stay at the newly opened resort in the heart of Utah's offroad country, both donated by Sage Creek.
"We're excited that Glenn is helping us to raise awareness about the Sage Creek Drive in the Desert." Wayne Aston, president of Sage Creek, said, "It's a tremendous opportunity for people to support two great nonprofits that have freed thousands of children from modern slavery. The drive gives people a chance to participate at whatever level they are comfortable - whether it's $5 to buy a warm meal for a kid in aftercare, or $5,000 to fund a sting."
"We believe that our partnership with Glenn is going to drive a lot of new awareness for the cause, which is why we're extending our entry deadline to raise even more funds. Our goal is to raise over $1 million, with all the donations going straight to the charities."
