Ritz-Carlton makes a 'Vow to Help Others'

It seems like there is nothing but bad news floating around out there lately, what with the economy in turmoil and all; so when I received information on a new program launched this past Valentine's day by the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company it made me smile. You see the program is making it possible for couples getting married at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel or Resort, to make their special day not only amazing, but personally enriching and beneficial to others in need.

Specifically, the program "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." To me, this is a HUGE step in the right direction. With the cost of weddings these days, sometimes it is hard to swallow spending so much money on one day- this may not make it easier, but it will add the knowledge that your Big Day could be making others' days just a little brighter!

Wondering where to head to get more info on the program? Why not start by visiting two of my favorites, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel and The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey. Both properties are spectacular options for your wedding- go see for yourself! Can't make it out there right away? Well then, click HERE to check out the full details in the press release.
