GIVING BACK: Hyatt Thrive Trinity River Project Update (PICTURES)

What a great day! Everyone involved put forth such great effort for this wonderful cause. We worked hard (it was over 100 degrees outside, by the way) and played hard (see water gun fight pictures at the end).  =)

Thank you to all involved; it was a great success!  If you'd like to learn more about the Trinity River Corridor Project, click here. And click here for more information about GroundWork Dallas.

GIVING BACK: Hyatts of Dallas Partner with GroundWork Dallas

In celebration of the launch of Hyatt Thrive, Hyatt's new global corporate responsibility platform, Hyatt Regency Dallas, Hyatt Regency DFW and Grand Hyatt DFW will partner with GroundWork Dallas this Thursday for a community clean-up event, benefiting the Dallas Trinity River Corridor Project.

This volunteer day is part of Hyatt's first global volunteer initiative, which brings Hyatt associates from all around the world together in a common effort to make an impact and help the communities, in which they call home, thrive.

With 120 associates from three Metroplex Hyatt hotels and volunteers from GroundWork Dallas, we will be helping to improve the ecosystems along the Trinity River by collecting debris.

Along with all the great amenities that will be available to residents once the project is complete, this area will also feature two eco-classrooms to be utilized by nearby Williams Preparatory School.

I'll be utilizing my (self-proclaimed) photography skills to bring you all a behind-the-scenes look at the day, so stay tuned for that update!

About the Trinity River Project:
"The Trinity River Project is one of the most monumental public works and economic development projects every attempted. As flood protection, recreation, environmental restoration, economic development, and major transportation projects converge along the Trinity River, residents and visitors from around the world will have a new and exciting image of the City of Dallas. Our city’s image will be defined by the wildlife, trails, parks, lakes, the Great Trinity Forest, a world-class equestrian and Audubon Environmental Interpretive Center and 'signature' bridges. These amenities will stimulate new urban development such as stunning waterfront condominiums, beautiful townhouses, office towers and a variety of sidewalk cafes and shops." via
