VANCOUVER — SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts is celebrating the 16th anniversary of its Friends In Need holiday campaign to support local communities. To that end, for every room reservation made at participating SilverBirch hotels during the week of Dec. 21 to Dec. 27, the company will donate $10 to a local charity.
“The campaign reaffirms our commitment to make a difference and give back to the communities we operate in, while providing additional value for our guests with a special holiday rate,” SilverBirch president and CEO Steve Giblin said in a release.
Guests are encouraged to book early for the holiday season to receive special rates ranging from $85 to $149 per night. This year, the target is to raise more than $23,000 through hotel room bookings and local fundraising events hosted by the participating hotels.
Since its inception in 2000, the Friends In Need campaign has raised over $1.2 million, benefiting charities across Canada. SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts properties participating in this year’s campaign include Residence Inn by Marriott Vancouver Downtown; DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Conference Centre Regina; Quality Hotel and Conference Centre, Fort McMurray, Alta.; Radisson Hotel Edmonton South; DoubleTree by Hilton West Edmonton; Home2 Suites by Hilton West Edmonton; Best Western Charlottetown; Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott St. John’s Newfoundland; Hampton Inn by Hilton Halifax-Downtown; and Homewood Suites by Hilton Halifax-Downtown.
