The Austin Conventions and Visitor’s Bureau and the Professional Convention Management Association hosted an event to support Sammy’s House, a nonprofit organization that helps children with medical or developmental issues.

The event—Hospitality Helping Hands—sold 150 volunteer spots. During it, volunteers worked on projects like playground repair, yard maintenance, toy sorting, cleaning classrooms and more to improve the facilities of the daycare.

Additionally, the event offered sponsorship opportunities. Organizations like Experient, Marriott and Global Experience Specialists sponsored the event. Overall, the event raised $12,850 for the organization.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
