MAINZ, Germany - Sportlich, sportlich: Bereits im April 2011 lud das Hilton Mainz zum „Tag der offenen Tür“ und feierte so nicht nur den erfolgreichen Abschluss des umfassenden Facelifts, sondern sammelte bei einer Tombola 3.541,92 Euro. Eine Nacht in der Präsidenten Suite oder einen Gutschein für ein exquisites Dinner in der neuen Brasserie – bei der Verlosung konnten die Besucher exklusive Preise gewinnen.

Der Gesamterlös ging zugunsten der Special Olympics, der weltweit größten, vom IOC offiziell anerkannten, Sportbewegung für Menschen mit geistiger und mehrfacher Behinderung. Die Organisation ist heute mit mehr als 3,1 Millionen Athleten und Athletinnen in 175 Ländern vertreten.

Roland Rössler, Cluster General Manager des Hilton Mainz und des Hilton Mainz City, überreichte den Scheck am 13. Juni 2011 im Hilton Mainz City an Clemens Traugott, 1.

Vorsitzender von Special Olympics Hessen. „Über 3.500 Euro für den guten Zweck – für uns war der „Tag der offenen Tür“ ein voller Erfolg. Es ist uns gelungen den Mainzern unser frisch renoviertes Haus zu präsentieren und eine ansehnlichen Betrag für die Special Olympics zu erzielen“, so Rössler.
