Preferred Recognizes Good Deeds

Preferred Hotel Group, which has more than 325 hotel and resort members worldwide, is launching a recognition and awards program. Entitled "GIFTTS: Great Initiatives for Today's (Tomorrow's) Society," its mandate is to identify and recognize exceptional actions on the part of member hotels and employees in the areas of philanthropy, environmental well-being and community service. Good works will be formally recognized at Preferred Hotel Group's Annual Conference starting with the 2006 event, scheduled to be held in Las Vegas this October.
