LAKE PLACID, N.Y., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- High Peaks Resort in Lake Placid is seeking applications for its Spring For Hope(SM) initiative, an opportunity for non-profit organizations to be awarded free use of meeting space, accommodations, and more at the beautiful Adirondacks resort.
This unprecedented opportunity will allow two non-profit organizations to each receive free use of the resort for three days during April 8 to 18, 2012. Included are two nights' accommodations (up to 133 rooms), meeting space (up to 10,000 square feet), audiovisual and support services, and 50 percent off all related catering. The application deadline is midnight, October 15, 2011, and winners will be announced in mid-November.
"In these difficult times, it is important to give back to our community. By helping those who help others year round, we felt we could have the greatest impact," said Bill DeForrest, CEO and President of Lane Hospitality, owner of High Peaks Resort.
"The quality of life in our community is directly impacted by our non-profits. 'Spring for Hope' isn't just a way to recognize them, but by providing High Peaks Resort free of charge, we can add our support and hopefully increase the good they do," added Truett Martin, Vice President of Operations and acting General Manager.
"This is an outstanding opportunity for the winning organizations to do whatever they want with our gift – from holding a fundraiser or thank you trip for staff and volunteers, to planning an annual meeting, seminar or retreat."
Spring For Hope is open to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations actively engaged in fundraising. Participants will be judged by a panel of community leaders on their success and impact in benefitting the communities they serve.
High Peaks Resort offers the Adirondacks' newest and most business-focused conference facilities with expansive meeting space and the latest conference-support technology. Located in the heart of Lake Placid, overlooking Mirror Lake and steps from Main Street, the entire resort will be made available to the winners.
