ORLANDO, Fla.(November 22, 2010) – Nickelodeon Suites Resort kicked off its 2nd annual Hero Appreciation program this spring raising $9,277.28 for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
Community heroes enjoyed discounted rates, antique fire truck experiences, bucket brigade games, and the Resort pledged two percent of every room night booked through the program to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
“We continue to show our appreciation of community heroes by giving back and are proud to deliver a check of more than $9,000 this year,” said Jim Struna, director of marketing and revenue management for Nickelodeon Suites Resort. “Nick Hotel is all about families and so it is extremely rewarding for us to be able to give back to a family-focused organization like the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.”
Continuing through 2011, the Resort is offering special rates to firefighters starting at $109 per night for a 2-bedroom family suite and other perks like a $20 resort credit and discounts on entertainment. The Resort will continue to donate 2% per room night to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to honor America's fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit Foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate. Our mission is to honor and remember America's fallen fire heroes and to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives.
