GAINESVILLE, FL Holiday Inn University Center Gainesville has launched a new charity program called “Holiday Inn Gives Back,” in which the hotel will champion a different local charity every month. When a group or organization books room blocks and/or meeting space, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the current month’s selected charity in the organization’s name. Piesanos Pints & and Pies restaurant, located adjacent to the hotel and a Gainesville favorite for Italian food, has also joined in on the opportunity to make an impact by volunteering to donate a portion of their proceeds on select night(s). This program makes the choice a very easy one when choosing a hotel for group needs – the location directly next to University of Florida is one thing, but having the opportunity to give back to the community is another that makes the Gainesville hotel the best choice for groups and meetings.
For the month of April, the Gainesville Holiday Inn has parterned up with LifeQuest Organ Recovery Services. LifeQuest’s mission to save lives relies on individuals’ commitment to organ and tissue donation. The organization encourages everyone to join the Florida Organ Donor Registry at www.donatelifeflorida.org.
LifeQuest representative Coral Denton and the Holiday Inn Staff joined in for a group photo outside the hotel in observance of “National Donate Life Blue and Green Day” sporting the colors of the cause.
