Windstar Cruises launches Turkey relief fund

Windstar Cruises is donating $15,000 to launch a relief fund for victims of the earthquake in Turkey.

Windstar established the fund through the American Red Cross, which will transfer all proceeds directly to the Turkish Red Crescent (Turkey's Red Cross) in Istanbul. Windstar ships have cruised to Turkey for the past seven years.

Donations to Windstar's Turkish earthquake relief fund can be sent to the American Red Cross, Turkish Earthquake Relief-Windstar, 1900 25th Ave. S., Seattle 98144.

Windstar ships will continue to call in Turkey on scheduled cruises through the fall of 2000.
