Curtis Hotel Associates raised over $3000 for CCB in the third quarter of 2016. Marc Greytak, Finance Director, presents the check to Director Julie Deden at the NFB of Colorado convention. Boulder Chapter President and Curtis Associate Maryann Migliorelli looks on.


And now raise your lemonade glass in a toast to employees at the Curtis Hotel!

Last weekend, at the 2016 National Federation of the Blind of Colorado Convention in Lone Tree, Marc Greytak of the Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver presented a check to CCB for $3141.25.

That’s pretty exciting, you bet! What makes this donation a bit more interesting, however, is that the money comes from the employees of the Curtis. The Colorado Center for the Blind was selected to be the beneficiary of the Curtis’s #WeLovetheCurtis giving program. Associates at the Curtis can give in a number of ways, including by payroll deduction or from proceeds from its Friday fund-raiser, the “Lemonade Stand.”

How did CCB get picked for the program, you might ask? Well, from our own Maryann Migliorelli , who is one of those Curtis Hotel employees andalso president of the NFB of Colorado Boulder Chapter!

Thanks MaryAnn and all the associates at the Curtis – yes, #WeLovetheCurtis, too!

    It was an absolute thrill for me to be a part of this process from start to finish. One of the reasons I love working for Sage hospitality is that we can choose where we give our charitable funds. Such opportunities don’t come with every corporation, but Sage truly steps up to the plate and gives out to where the organizations like the Colorado Center for the blind. All of my Curtis hotel family definitely stepped up to the plate as well. Thanks for all of the support in making this small dreamed possible. Keep dreaming, and keep living. 🙂
