Protravel International Hosts "Spring Awakening 2012" Gala

Protravel International hosted the “Spring Awakening 2012” gala on Thursday, April 26, 2012 at New York’s Pierre Hotel. The event featured nearly 700 of Protravel’s New York-based clients and luxury travel suppliers.

Priscilla Alexander, the founder and president of Protravel, said, “A recent New York Times article suggested that travel agents are back. Looking around this room I would suggest that we never went away.”

The event also featured stilt walkers, costumed greeters to welcome guests and travel prizes. Additionally, the event publicized Protravel’s humanitarian efforts in Rwanada, where for several years the company has funded sustainable villages which impact the lives of over 1,000 individuals, many of them orphaned as a result of genocide and AIDS. A grand raffle, to be drawn on May 1, has raised thousands of dollars for these efforts.

Protravel International is a VIRTUOSO member.
