"...this type of large-scale disaster could have easily happened off our shore and we felt that we needed to do something to help." Neel Desai, Managing Partner, LTD Management Company, L.L.C.
Chesapeake, VA (PRWEB) June 17, 2010
LTD Management Company, L.L.C. (LTD), a hospitality development and management group headquartered in Chesapeake, Virginia, launched its “Caring from Coast to Coast” campaign today, through which the company will donate 10% of each night’s stay to the Gulf Relief Foundation, a non-profit focusing on two key elements of recovery from the oil spill – the wetlands/coastal environmental issues and the well-being of fishermen and the regional seafood industry.
Guests booking at any of the company’s 31 properties are encouraged to ask for the “COAST CARE” rate - a promotional program that includes a minimum 10% off discount as well as 10% donation to the Gulf Relief Foundation. The “COAST CARE” rate will be available through September 30, 2010. Please visit http://www.careforthecoast.com to view all of LTD’s hotel locations.
Neel Desai, Managing Partner for LTD Management Company, L.L.C, stated, “As a coastally-based company, we understand that this type of large-scale disaster could have easily happened off our shore and we felt that we needed to do something to help. The spill is not only affecting the Gulf Coast’s beautiful environment, but its businesses as well - from fishermen, to restaurants and hotels. This is an attempt to help a part of our country in need.”
The Gulf Relief Foundation recently held “GULF AID: Concert for the Coast" at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The hour-long benefit concert raised over $300,000 and featured Lenny Kravitz, John Legend, Ani Difranco, Allen Toussaint, The Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band with Mos Def.
LTD will run the “COAST CARE” through the end of September and plans on making their first donation to the Gulf Relief Foundation in mid - August. The company is promoting this program in all of their hotel locations.

ABOUT THE GULF RELIEF FOUNDATION
The Gulf Relief Foundation was established to raise funds for efforts to stop the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico from destroying our wetlands, as well as for wetland recovery efforts to benefit fishermen and their families as oil continues to gush into the Gulf of Mexico from the site of the collapsed deepwater horizon.
The fund has been created to ensure that all monies are properly distributed to organizations to focus on two key elements of recovery – the wetlands/coastal environmental issues and the well-being of fishermen and the regional seafood industry.
