Downtown Chicago hotel raises awareness and money to help families in Metropolitan Chicago achieve healthy and productive lives

Hyatt Regency Chicago rang in the New Year with a bang and well deserved dollars for the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago. In keeping with its tradition of giving back to the community, the downtown Chicago hotel celebrated New Year’s Eve with its first annual NYE Ballroom Blitz. This amazing event was a resounding success in creating awareness and raising money for the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, and in giving guests a festive way to lend a hand and hope to the families of Chicago.

“We are proud to support the efforts of the United Way of Metropolitan to helps families in Chicago stay positive and healthy through education, healthcare and employment,” says Andrea Kasnic, Director of Sales & Marketing. “Our annual New Year’s Eve Ballroom Blitz brought hundreds of Chicagoans together for a special night of music, magic and the dream of a bright future for all the people of Chicago. We believe that hospitality and advocacy go hand in hand.”

In partnership with RedEye Chicago, the 2011 NYE Ballroom Blitz at Hyatt Regency Chicago was an incredibly beneficial event for United Way of Metropolitan Chicago. The event featured an open bar, dinner, party favors and festivities. Created by our mixologists, our signature drink, the RedEye Ballroom Spritz, was the toast of Chicago in the BIG Bar throughout the month of December. The hotel took additional donations on top of ticket purchases and donated a portion of its drink sales being sold in BIG Bar to United Way of Metro Chicago.

Following up on its dedication to the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, Hyatt Regency Chicago and RedEye have begun the countdown to its annual 2012 NYE Ballroom Blitz- the hottest New Year's Eve celebration Downtown Chicago has to offer.
