The brand recently presented the winners of the first “Home Team Hospitality” contest, St. Felicitas School in San Leandro, Calif., with a custom scoreboard to replace the broken equipment in their school gymnasium. Thanks to the new scoreboard, the program – which serves approximately 400 children in the local community – can recommence hosting home games instead of paying fees to play in local gyms.
“After seeing the impact the 2014 ‘Home Team Hospitality’ contest had on the community of San Leandro last week, we are more enthusiastic than ever to expand on this initiative with new groups in the communities our hotels touch every day,” said Greg Giordano, vice president of operations for Baymont Inn & Suites. “The contest allows us to spread the Hometown Hospitality culture we exercise in our hotels to towns across America by creating meaningful connections with passionate and inspirational local organizations.”
A panel of four judges will choose one finalist from each of eight regions based on the description provided and the uniqueness of their reason for seeking support from Baymont Inn & Suites. Fans will then have the chance to vote for one of eight regional finalists in this year’s contest from May 25, 2015, to June 8, 2015, on the brand’s website. The team that receives the most votes will be awarded the grand prize, while runners up will each receive $2,500 and 200,000 Wyndham Rewards points.
In addition to the contest, the brand is offering groups a 20 percent discount when they book 10 or more rooms at any participating Baymont Inn & Suites property from March 20, 2015 to June 15, 2015 for stays through the end of the year. To book this offer, call +1 (866) 782-9694.
