We are pleased to honor these hotels and thank them for their ongoing commitment to their local communities. While we recognize them with an award, the true winners are the communities they serve.
Chicago, IL (Vocus/PRWEB) February 21, 2011
Community, environment and philanthropy are the hallmarks of Preferred Hotel Group™’s GIFTTS program. Now in its fifth year, GIFTTS (Great Initiatives for Today’s [Tomorrow’s] Society) honored The Broadmoor and its employees with the coveted ‘Pineapple Leader Award’ for outstanding commitment to social and corporate responsibility.
The 2010 leaders were announced during Preferred Hotel Group’s Annual Conference last month before an audience of over 350 international delegates.
Located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, The Broadmoor helped raise more than $70,000 for United Way in just one year and provided bicycles, all assembled by hotel staff, to underprivileged families in the community through its Christmas Unlimited Build-a-Bike Program. The hotel’s Recycling Manager, along with the Conservation and Recycling Committee, was charged with overseeing the many sophisticated environmental initiatives, which have helped reduce electrical consumption significantly at the property.
"GIFTTS was created to recognize leadership in community and social responsibility," said Lindsey Ueberroth, President. "We are pleased to honor these hotels and thank them for their ongoing commitment to their local communities. While we recognize them with an award, the true winners are the communities they serve."
