Concessionaire HMSHost at Los Angeles International Airport has donated $125,000 from its 2011 fundraising campaign to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, a member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
To kick-off the concessionaire’s 2012 fundraising campaign, the newly opened Nate ‘n Al Delicatessen in Terminal 2 donated 10 percent of its Jan. 17-24 sales at both LAX and its flagship location in Beverly Hills to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, a HMSHost spokesperson said.
“We are both grateful for 2011 and excited about our 2012 partnership with HMSHost at LAX,” said Joanne Reyes, assistant vice president of Corporate Partnerships and Cause Marketing for Children’s Hospital. “The genuine care that HMSHost has already shown to Children’s Hospital is outstanding, and we are proud that HMSHost is helping us to create hope and build healthier futures for the children in our community.”
Throughout 2011, HMSHost’s LAX associates and their families participated in numerous efforts such as the Walk for Kids 5K fundraiser; encouraging travelers to donate CMN coin donation canisters at HMSHost’s LAX restaurants; and the “Christmas in July” toy drive in partnership with Los Angeles World Airports.
“LAWA strongly believes in social responsibility and we praise HMSHost’s generous and continuous support of Children’s Miracle Network and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles,” LAWA Managing Director for Media and Public Relations Mary Grady said.
HMSHost operates in more than 100 airports around the globe, including the 20 busiest airports in North America.
