In the Words of Chesapeake

Commitment to a Cause

Commitment to a Cause

December 17, 2018

At the beginning of 2018 we chose a word for each month of the new year.  These words became themes that would guide us through each month and remind us of our purpose: service to others. Our theme for the month of December is COMMITMENT. Throughout the month we have demonstrated our commitment to serve one another, our guests and those in need. 

A special culmination of this commitment took place last week when we presented a check to Pamela Landwirth, CEO of Give Kids The World. This check represented a year's worth of fundraising efforts by our properties and will allow 24 families of children with life-threatening illness to visit Give Kids The World for a cost-free, much-needed, joyful vacation.  

Fundraising for Give Kids The World is important at each of our properties and when we combine efforts with one another and support each other's fundraisers, the experience is even more rewarding.  Highlights of some of these fundraisers gktw5kinclude the 5th annual GKTW golf tournament hosted by the DoubleTree by Hilton Jacksonville Riverfront, the 2nd annual "Happiness Inspires Hope" bike ride hosted by six of our local Maryland properties, and Chesapeake's participation in the Give Kids The World's annual "Challenge for Hope" 5K, organized by the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore.

Our commitment to Give Kids The World is unwavering.  It originates in the heart and is demonstrated by consistent action.  We are dedicated to serving these families throughout the year and look forward to continuing our efforts in 2019.
