 Paradise Point Resort's Nina Sciuto Awarded 
Travelers Aid Help on the Move Award
San Diego, CA –  May 8, 1999 - Nina Sciuto, Assistant Director of Human Resources for San Diego Paradise Point Resort, was honored with the prestigious Travelers Aid Help on the Move Award at an awards luncheon Friday, May 7, 1999.  Nina was chosen among finalists from around San Diego County as the recipient of this highly coveted award.  Nina received the award for her tireless efforts and selfless devotion as a bilingual wish granter for the San Diego Make-A-Wish Foundation.  Nina volunteers her time outside of work year-round to help make the dreams of children living with life-threatening illnesses come true. 

Due to the resort’s eleven-year involvement with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Nina was sought out by the Foundation to volunteer as a bilingual wish granter.  Nina warmly accepted the opportunity and has since been involved throughout the past year helping to make children’s wishes come true in the Hispanic communities of San Diego.

San Diego Paradise Point Resort will host the 12th Annual Make-A-Wish Golf Tournament Monday, June 28, 1999.  The tournament is expected to exceed the $1 million mark in total donations.  To date, the tournament has raised $875,000, which directly benefits the children of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of San Diego. The entire tournament is completely staffed by employee volunteer hours and has become a labor of love for all of the resort employees.    The annual golf tournament was also the recent recipient of the 1999 California State Tourism Award for Best Community Service Program. 

Celebrating 37 years of excellence, San Diego Paradise Point Resort is a two-time recipient of the Finest Service Award presented by the Convention and Visitors Bureau.  Paradise Point Resort is a 44-acre tropical island surrounded by a mile of white sandy beach and located just across the street from SeaWorld Adventure Park at 1404 West Vacation Road, San Diego, CA 92109.  For more information regarding the 12th Annual Make-A-Wish Golf Tournament, contact the tournament Director, Steve Gaspari, at (619) 581-5942.
