A Special Night!
March 28, 2011

The Fairfield Inn & Suites (FFI) General Managers' Conference officially began yesterday, March 27, 2011.  Each year, FFI recognizes their top hotels in Community Service with an award named "Rally to Serve".  At yesterday's ceremonies, the brand renamed the Rally to Serve award in community services' programs - Habitat for Humanity.  Bruce Reed, Account Executive for Select Service brands, has been the leading force in the Habitat for Humanity initiative since its inception and was paid tribute when Marriott renamed the Rally to Serve award in honor of Bruce's contributions over the years to the "Bruce Reed Rally to Serve" award.

The excitement does not stop there!  The recognition continued last night when Jay Lockhart, General Manager of the Fairfield Inn in Dothan, AL, received the Rally to Serve - Hotel of the Year award for the softball tournament event that all 6 of the Dothan based hotels participated in to collect needed tools to help with the builds in the Wiregrass area.  While that is a very special honor, Jay received the very first Bruce Reed Rally to Serve award!  That will forever be a special moment for all of us at LBA and to Bruce Reed, as we have had a very long and special relationship with Bruce over the years.  It is truly an honor for Jay to be the first recipient of this most prestigious award.  Congratulations to Jay and his staff!
