Dulles, VA (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
The new Hilton Garden Inn Dulles North, located in Dulles/Ashburn, VA announces the date of its dedication ceremony as Thursday, February 12, 2009.
On February 12, the Hilton Garden Inn Dulles North will celebrate its launch into the Dulles market with its "Big Bash." Leading into the Valentine's Day weekend, the theme of the dedication will tie in the brand's involvement with the National Gardening Association (see "About The National Gardening Association" at end of the release) while also fostering a bit of romance. Guests will be greeted by ornamental trees, blossoming flowers, and lush foliage, followed by musical and comedic entertainment, a sampling of the hotel's innovative menu and some wonderful surprises. After enjoying the show, party guests will depart with floral bouquets and chocolates in hand.
"In addition to our involvement with the National Gardening Association, we're cultivating better opportunities for area families that have given so much for our nation's security by serving in our armed forces. We know many of our returning war veterans and their families need some help getting back to physical and economic stability and therefore, we are big supporters of "Operation Homefront." With events like our "Big Bash" hotel dedication, where we will actively raise money and awareness for the cause, we can celebrate our achievement and also do something great for a worthy cause," said Greg Miller, President & CEO of PMHS.
The hotel has created a unique "win-win" incentive for overnight travelers that will provide much needed funds to Operation Homefront's DC Metro Chapter (see "About Operation Homefront" at end of the release). From now until the end of February, the hotel is offering an enticing $99.00 Garden of Opportunity rate on its web site that will deliver $33.00 directly to Operation Homefront's DC Metro Chapter for each overnight stay that is booked using the special offer.
For overnight guests, that rate represents the best price for an upscale hotel product in Loudoun with the added benefit of supporting our returning war veterans and their families.
The Hilton Garden Inn Dulles North is owned by The Buccini/Pollin Group (Buccini/Pollin) and operated by PM Hospitality Strategies, Inc. (PMHS) under a license agreement with a wholly owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation.

About the National Gardening Association (NGA)
The NGA worked with Hilton Garden Inn to develop a special education package known as "The Hilton Garden Inn School Garden Education Program." The program provides guidance and knowledge to educators along with the tools necessary for participating schools to grow an indoor or outdoor garden. By using a hands-on approach to grow their school garden, students have the opportunity to take ownership and pride in an educational project that continues to grow right along with their learning. Hilton Garden Inn locations donate to this education package for local schools, provide personal teamwork and dedication, and grow this special relationship to realize a school garden together. "Growing a school garden will teach future generations about the importance of the environment in which they live in, while creating a beautiful setting," said Valerie Kelsey, president, NGA. "The garden will generate pride among the students and provide a wholesome activity that makes valuable connections between major education disciplines, spark inquisitiveness and enhance problem-solving skills. We are truly appreciative of Hilton Garden Inn and their dedication to such a worthwhile program."
