Harbour Towers Hotel & Suites Announces Retirement Of Mariza Belusic
VICTORIA, BC (November 17, 2010) – In the spirit of giving, the Harbour Towers Hotel & Suites will donate $10.00 per room, per night of its December 21 – 28 bookings to charity, while offering great rates, giving guests more reason than ever to check in this holiday season.
The donation is part of the hotel’s participation in the Friends In Need program, an annual initiative held at over 20 hotels across Canada managed by SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts, including the Harbour Towers Hotel & Suites. Under the program, the hotel offers low holiday rates and donates $10 from each booking during the campaign to a special charity. The Harbour Towers Hotel & Suites has chosen The Mustard Seed as its Friends In Need recipient.
“This is the eleventh year of Friends In Need and we are thrilled to have partnered with The Mustard Seed again. It’s such a worthwhile cause and we are looking forward to working with our guests to help them out this holiday season,” says David Rooper, General Manager.
Thirty-five years ago the Mustard Seed Street Church began from a prayer closet in a store on Government Street in Victoria. The need of the under-privileged was so great that the ministry expanded to a building on Pandora Avenue. It began its outreach to the community as a church which soon grew to include a food bank, clothing bank, counseling and advocacy service, prison visitation and street ministry. The Mustard Seed Food Bank exists to serve people of all ages. Each month over 7,000 people benefit from our service.
“The Harbour Towers Hotel & Suites’ Friends In Need program provides a financial boost to our organization and the people we serve here in Victoria,” says Brent Palmer, Food Bank Director. “We are pleased to be a recipient of this great program and applaud the Harbour Towers Hotel, SilverBirch Hotels and Resorts, and all the guests who check in, for their support.”
Started in 1999, the Friends In Need program has distributed over $900,000 to charities across Canada. This year, the program has been expanded with a goal to raise more funds than ever. The target for this year’s program over $86,000.
