“Our hotels have a proven ability to give back through creative connections through special events and promotions like “Rockin’ the Courts,” says Marcus Latner, Regional Director of Operations.

During the month of November, the three court hotels by Valencia Hotel Group including Lone Star Court in Austin, Cavalry Court in College Station and Texican Court in Irving’s Las Colinas participated in a crowdsourcing fundraiser called “Rockin’ the Courts.” This initiative was put in place to raise money for the classic and adored rocking chairs at the court hotels to be donated to various organizations in each hotel’s respective city. Funds were raised by loyal guests through GoFundMe and by donating portions of proceeds from specialty drinks offered at the hotel restaurants and bars. With over $2,700 raised over the course of the month, the first year of the initiative proved to be a success.

The money raised will be used to purchase rocking chairs for the benefit of the Ronald McDonald House in Austin, the Irving Family Advocacy Center in Irving, and the CHI St. Joseph Health in Bryan and Baylor Scott & White in College Station.

“One of our core values at Valencia Hotel Group is connecting our hotels to the communities where we are built. Our hotels have a proven ability to give back through creative connections through special events and promotions like “Rockin’ the Courts,” says Marcus Latner, Regional Director of Operations. “Without our guest’s generosity, successful initiatives like this would not be possible.”

In addition to the three court hotels that participated in 2019, Valencia Hotel Group is thrilled to have the new Cotton Court in Lubbock participate in 2020. Valencia Hotel Group looks forward to the same initiative in 2020 in hopes of raising more money with local partners to provide rocking chairs to various organizations throughout Texas.
