2022 Recipient – Trent Robbins
Trent Robbins and his family had their hot tub delivered in mid-June. Trent, who lives in Sparks with his wife and their three children, is a Purple Heart recipient who served in the Marines as a machine gunner between 2004 and 2008. He received his Purple Heart in 2006 after he was shot in the neck during his second overseas tour, in Iraq, all before he turned 21 years old.

It’s official! We’re seeking candidates for our next Hot Tub donation! There’s still time to nominate a service member or veteran for a 2022 hot tub donation! We will do our second donation in late 2022 or early 2023.
The Spa and Sauna Company, spa manufacturer Sundance Spas, and the charity Wish for Our Heroes, are seeking applications and nominations for a local veteran, who would like to have a hot tub donated to them.
This will be the fourth time, since 2018, that the three organizations have teamed up to award a local soldier or veteran a hot tub.
Previous recipients include the Rogers family of Reno in 2018, the Vogt family in Sparks in 2019 and the Kemp family of Reno, who was selected in 2020, but had her spa delivered in 2021. All have selected a Sundance Hamilton 780 Spa.
The Spa and Sauna Company is honored to participate in the program again.
“It’s enormously satisfying to give back to the community we have served for so many years,” said Spa and Sauna Company Owner Scott Clark.
Wish for Our Heroes is “a national 501(c)(3), dedicated to providing resources to the “average” active-duty military member, in order to make their deployments a little easier, and to improve the quality of their family lives while home or during deployment,” according to their website.
“Sundance Spas also chose to partner up with Wish for Our Heroes because most of the donations goes to the cause. 100% of individual donations and 95% of corporate donations go directly toward granting wishes. They’re an amazing group and we couldn’t have asked for a better partner,” said James Choi, Channel Marketing Manager for Sundance Spas.
