Along with an exchange of rings and traditional marital pledges, newlywed couples celebrating their marriage at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel or Resort, can also include “A Vow to Help Others”. This commitment allows them to share the happiness of their special day with those in need, including local charities, by donating a portion of their reception costs to a cause close to their heart, as well as worthwhile organizations supported by the Community Footprints Fund.
Beginning February 14, 2009, “A Vow To Help Others” gives wedding couples the opportunity to donate five percent of the total food revenue from their event equally between a charity of their choice and to the Community Footprints Fund, sponsored by The Ritz-Carlton, which benefits hunger and poverty relief, well-being of disadvantaged children, and environmental conservation.
“For over twenty-five years The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has been committed to the support of local charities and causes” explained Sue Stephenson, vice president, Community Footprints. “We know that many of our guests actively participate in worthwhile activities in their community, and want the opportunity to include this spirit of giving as part of their special day. “A Vow To Help Others” is a unique way for our hotels to partner with wedding couples to make their wedding experience both memorable and personally enriching,” she added.
“A Vow To Help Others” is applicable to wedding events booked prior to December 31, 2009 – for events taking place prior to December 31, 2010. It is based upon program availability at all Ritz-Carlton Hotels and Resorts in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. Contact a catering sales professional for more information on the program.
