CHOICE HOTELS CANADA AIDS
VICTIMS OF TERRORIST ATTACKS

 

TORONTO, ON,: Choice Hotels Canada (CHC) is proud to

launch a donation program to aid victims of the terrorist attacks that took

place on September 11 in the United States.

Beginning October 8th, donation boxes will be set up at 240 Choice hotels

across the country. For every dollar collected at its properties, Choice

Hotels Canada will donate an additional dollar to the relief effort through

the Canadian Red Cross - U.S.A. Appeal. With the public's help, Choice

Hotels Canada hopes to donate as much as $200,000 to this worthy cause.

 

"Since the tragic events of September 11, we have seen a huge outpouring of

generosity from corporations like Choice Hotels Canada," said Pierre

Duplessis, Secretary General, Canadian Red Cross. "There will be a need for

long term assistance for the countless people whose lives have been

shattered by these events."

To support the donation program, Choice will amend a four-week national

television advertising campaign, scheduled to launch the week of October 8,

to include information on how people can make a contribution to the cause.

"The world has witnessed events of historic proportions. We, at Choice

Hotels Canada, want to show our support to those families who have been most

affected by this terrible tragedy," said Gary Decatur, president and CEO,

Choice Hotels Canada.

 

Choice Hotels Canada and its franchisee advisory board, the CCFAB, have also

launched an internal fundraising campaign, encouraging its franchisees and

employees to make contributions to the Canadian Red Cross - U.S.A. Appeal.

Again, Choice will match these contributions dollar for dollar, with the

goal of donating a total of $20,000. Donations for the fundraising programs will be

accepted until December 30, 2001.

 

Choice Hotels Canada is the largest hotel chain in the country with over 250

hotels open an under development from coast to coast. Its eight brands

include Clarion, Quality, Comfort, Comfort Suites, Sleep Inn, Econo Lodge,

Rodeway and Mainstay Suites. Choice Canada is part of Choice Hotels

International, which has 5,000 properties in 41 countries. Further

CHOICE HOTELS CANADA LAUNCHES TRAVEL AGENT PROMOTION

TORONTO, ON: This Fall, Choice Hotels Canada (CHC) will

launch a multi-faceted promotion for travel agents. Not only is CHC

increasing commission to 15 per cent, but Choice is also giving travel

agents the chance to win $5,000, when they make a GDS reservation at any

Choice hotel in Canada. The promotion will also see a $5,000 donation going

to the Canadian Red Cross - U.S.A. Appeal to assist with the relief effort

for victims of the terrorist attacks.

From October 1 - December 30, commission for travel agents booking with

Choice will increase to 15 per cent (from 10 per cent). "We are very excited

about this promotion because it gives us the opportunity to show travel

agents how much we appreciate their business, especially during this

difficult time," said Katrina Sagan, executive director of sales, Choice

Hotels Canada.

 

The cash giveaway component of the promotion works like this: From October 8

- December 15, every time a travel agent books a Choice Canada property in

GDS, and enters "ECcash" plus their name in the SI field, they will be

entered into the draw. At the end of the promotion, a name will be randomly

selected and the winning travel agent will receive $5,000 in cash. CHC will

donate an additional $5,000 to the Canadian Red Cross - U.S.A. Appeal in the

name of the winner's travel agency.

 

This promotion coincides with another donation program Choice recently

launched in which the company hopes to raise more than $200,000 to help

families who lost loved ones in the September 11 terrorist attacks.

 

All eight hotel brands under the Choice Canada umbrella can be viewed in GDS

using the universal chain code EC (Exclusively Choice).
