The CARE Auction at Boomerville, East of Quartzsite, Arizona

The CARE Center at Rainbow's End RV Park in Livingston Texas is a unique health care setting that assists full time Escapee members and spouses following illness, injury, surgery or during a progressive long term health situation.  There are 30 plus RV slots available for members to live in their own homes while receiving needed services.

Health assistance costs are kept in check by donations from Escapee members.  Today, The Boomers are holding a CARE Auction to raise funds for this worthwhile cause.
