Recent “Party with a Purpose” Event Hosted at Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia to Benefit Underprivileged Children
DUNWOODY, Ga. – (December 16, 2021) – In the spirit of giving, Dunwoody’s largest hotel property has partnered with surrounding metro-Atlanta hotels to spread comfort and joy to underprivileged children this holiday season. Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia, InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, and EVEN Hotel Alpharetta, part of the IHG Hotels & Resorts family, are donating more than 60 toys to Toys for Tots.
On December 2, the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia hosted “Party with a Purpose” as part of IHG’s nationwide philanthropy effort to collect toys for local charities. At this event colleagues, meeting planners and clients joined together to assemble toys for underprivileged children.
With the help of the Marine Corps and 50 local volunteers, they assembled six bikes and two Black & Decker Kids’ WorkBench Sets. Just in time for the holidays, these gifts will bring joy to children in need and send a message of hope during the holiday season.
“As IHG is committed to helping those in our local communities, I am so proud of our team and business partners who came together to make a positive impact for children in need in the Dunwoody area,” said Sharon Kilmartin, area general manager of IHG Hotels and Resorts. “I want to thank everyone who participated in this initiative to help make a difference this holiday season.”
Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia, InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, and EVEN Hotel Alpharetta are some of approximately 40 properties in the IHG Hotels & Resorts family that participated in IHG’s “Party with a Purpose.” The initiative started in San Francisco and now has a number of participating locations across the U.S. and Canada. As part of the program, IHG Hotels & Resorts will be donating $1 for every toy donated through Party with a Purpose (up to $20,000) to the nonprofit No Kid Hungry.
Collaborating to aid those facing food poverty or insecurity is part of IHG’s 10-year Journey to Tomorrow, a responsible business plan designed to improve the lives of people in the Dunwoody community.
