Proving that hospitality extends beyond the doors of a hotel, Associated Luxury Hotels International raised $15,400 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during its recent annual Industry Advisory Council Conference in Miami.
Each year, the conference selects a CSR opportunity for attendee contributions, which ALHI matches. Because September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and it coincided with the conference date, St. Jude’s was an ideal recipient for the philanthropy. This year’s donations came from 275 attendees.
St. Jude, based in Memphis, Tenn., is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children. It has affiliate hospitals in Huntsville, Ala.; Peoria, Ill.; Baton Rouge and Shreveport, La.; Springfield, Mo.; Charlotte, N.C.; and Johnson City, Tenn.
