Giving Back to the Community

Last week the hotel celebrated its 90th anniversary and in case you did not yet see the pictures on our Facebook page, here is a link to them.
 
90th birthday party at the Hawthorne
 
As part of the celebration, the Hawthorne sold raffle tickets and created a signature cocktail that raised funds for the Salem Education Foundation. As the hotel was founded by community partners, we felt that on our 90th birthday we should give back to the same community. Picking the Salem Education Foundation thus seemed like a great fit.
 
With the party in full swing, over 400 people attended and had a blast. On top of that we were able to raise $2,500 that will help support educational efforts in Salem.

We already look forward to our centennial celebration on 2025, and hope you do too!!

Best regards,

Patrick Cornelissen
General Manager
