Sandals Foundation Humanitarian Award to Peter Blum of Premium Resorts
Peter Blum of Cook Travel / Premium Resorts, is a man dedicated to helping others. Most recently, he was recognized for his worldwide contributions to the Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts.
In Sandals Royal Bahamian, Nassau, the Bahamas at last month’s S.T.A.R. Awards, Blum received a humanitarian award during the ceremony that honors the top travel agency partners of Sandals Resorts. The award pays tribute to his outstanding and long-time support of Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts, as well as the Caribbean and its people.
Blum has dedicated his time, service, and personal expenditures while giving selflessly in ways that make a real impact and back the positive efforts of the Sandals Foundation. He is a compassionate volunteer who is always willing to ‘roll up his sleeves’ and inspire others to do the same.
Blum conceptualized an on-property initiative in collaboration with Jamaican performer Rory Frankson, which resulted in a percentage of CD sales going to assist the Foundation’s work. He has been active in Advisory Board meetings and looks to develop new opportunities for the charity to raise capital. He supports Sandals Foundation projects and lends a helping hand to local programs such as the Holiday Toy Drive, school groundbreakings and buildings; and goes on the road without hesitation to represent the Sandals Foundation at trade shows and events. Blum was also instrumental in the creation of T.A.G., the Travel Agent Giveback Program, which he has continued to promote in order to raise awareness among travel agents on how they can donate a part of their commissions to make a positive difference.
