You can check in, bed down, and get a great nightâ€™s sleep all in aid of a worthy cause during the first two weeks of February. Sage Hospitality, the largest privately held hotel management company in the nation, will be donating select overnight rates at each of its 53 hotels across the country, like The Nines in Portland and Chicago’s Renaissance Blackstone.
Each hotel will randomly pick four guests during the run of the promotion, February 1-14, 2011. Following a comfortable nightâ€™s sleep each lucky guest will learn the cost of their overnight stay is being donated to charity – and they’ll be offered the opportunity to select a beneficiary from a list of good causes, including FoodforthePoor.org, Volunteers of America, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters, World Vision and UNICEF.
From the betterment of local communities to aiding victims of the earthquake in Haiti, Sage has long held that charity beginsÂ at home. The While You Were Sleeping promotion is just the latest charitable outreach. Other recent funding drives have included Best in Class, a nationwide school partnership program offering volunteer and financial support to at-risk schools, and the Sage Relief Rate, which raised $70,000 in aid of earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.
