Giving Back: February Recap

The associates at the Grand Hyatt DFW are committed to lending a helping hand whenever possible.  We are so proud of our associates and the efforts that go into giving back.  So, we wanted to let you in on the results of our February initiatives that included working to raise money for two very worthy causes:

1)  Haiti Relief 
2)  The American Heart Association


As everyone knows, the earthquake in Haiti was devastating (to say the least).  They were, and still are, in need of help.  Together, with the Hyatt Regency Sarasota and the American Red Cross, we are doing our best to make a difference in the lives of those affected by this tragedy. The Hyatt Regency Sarasota sponsored a "Hyatt Walk for Haiti" on February 20 to raise funds for earthquake relief.  When we heard about this effort, the Grand Hyatt DFW Diversity Council sprung into action to lend a helping hand to the fundraising cause of our fellow Hyatt employees in Florida.

Thanks to our generous associates, we proudly donated $310 to the Hyatt Walk for Haiti! All proceeds benefit the Red Cross in Southwest Florida.

In honor of American Heart Month (and Valentine's Day), the Grand Hyatt DFW Diversity Council hosted the annual Heart-O-Gram Fundraiser; an associate favorite!

For $2 each, associates sent each other a Valentine greeting, which included: a bag FULL of candy & toys, along with a personalized Valentine's Day card (Think second grade - I know! So fun!).  And for $1, associates received a raffle ticket for the ultimate Valentine's Day gift basket. 
We must have a lot of sweet tooth's in the building, because we were able to raise $640!!  All proceeds benefit the American Heart Association.

Thank you again to all our generous associates who open up their hearts (and their wallets) to lend a helping hand.  You make all the difference at the Grand Hyatt DFW!!
