Giving

The Hawthorne Hotel receives a LOT of requests from worthy causes far and near.  In fact, we receive on average about 25 requests per week.  That means about 1,300 requests per year.

We give to a lot of these causes.  In fact, so much so that today I signed over 35 certificates, equaling about $2,000 in donations, which cover those received in just a two-week period of time.  I don't really usually notice it so much, because I usually sign them fairly often, but because I was on vacation they piled up until my return.

Here is a photo of the ones I signed today.


I hope you appreciate how much work this is for my assistant, and expense for the Hawthorne Hotel, and I certainly do hope that you appreciate our participation in the worthy projects of all of these entities, and show that appreciation by supporting the Hawthorne Hotel.

So, the next time you think about where to have an event, or where to stay, or where to eat, or where to meet for a cocktail, or where to BUY a gift card for a friend or family member, I hope you will think about the Hawthorne Hotel.

Shamelessly plugging for more business so we can continue to support all of these worthy causes,

Juli
