Ritz-Carlton in drive to help institute
Manama, March 5, 2009
The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain Hotel & Spa has launched its “Adopt a Lion” campaign designed to raise funds for the Regional Institute of Active learning (RIA).
As part of its Community Footprints initiative, cuddly Ritz-Carlton lions will be on offer at all restaurants and the boutique of the resort starting from March 10.
For BD5 ($13.20), participants have the opportunity to give one of these fluffy soft toys a new home. The money raised through this initiative will be benefiting RIA, located in Adliya.
RIA is the hotel’s adopted charity of the year and was created in 1999, founded by Dr Emad Al Attar and his wife Christine Gordon. As non-profit organisation, it caters to the educational needs of children with learning and communication difficulties.
The hotel supports the institute continuously throughout the year with different initiatives such as the “Give Back Getaways” program, which offers an opportunity to volunteer under Community Footprints, Ritz-Carlton’s social and environmental responsibility program.
The employees of the Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain Hotel & Spa have been closely associated with RIA for the past three years. Together, they have created opportunities for the guests to interact with the children of RIA through special initiatives and to give back to the community in a way that is meaningful to the lives of others.
Guests are taken on a tour of the facilities at RIA centre, and also invited to join the teachers and children for skill-building programs including tree-plantings, baking cookies and cakes, and join in fun-filled events on the hotel’s premises. – TradeArabia News Service
