Barrett-Jackson Teams Up With Hotels for Hope to Support the American Heart Association
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – March 24, 2017 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, announced today that it has partnered with Hotels for Hope to support the American Heart Association. For every actualized hotel room night booked through the Barrett-Jackson website, Hotels for Hope will donate $2 to the American Heart Association. Barrett-Jackson’s Hotels for Hope program is now live and accessible on Barrett-Jackson.com by clicking on “Hotels.”
“Our company was founded on the principles of giving back to the community,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “To date, we’ve raised over $93 million for charities across the country. Those donations were largely possible through the sale of charity vehicles that crossed our block. By teaming up with Hotels for Hope, we’re giving our guests another way to support a worthy cause each time they book a hotel room for one of our events through our website.”
Hotels for Hope is an Austin, Texas-based RoomFunding brokerage and technology company. RoomFunding is similar to crowdfunding in that it crowdsources enough room nights to fund a nonprofit project. Hotels for Hope has partnered with more than 600,000 hotels across the country, which allows guest to save close to 25 percent off best available rates. Their robust technology also manages every aspect of the hotel booking process, including room block management, group requests and inventory.
Some of the RoomFunding projects that have already benefited from Hotels for Hope include Special Olympics Texas, The NY Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund, Rotary International, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and Foundations of Music.
“We’re proud to make the American Heart Association the benefactor of our Hotels for Hope program,” said Jackson. “We chose to support the AHA because we believe in its dedication to fighting the debilitating effects of cardiovascular disease. Many of us know someone who has suffered from a heart attack or stroke, and Hotels for Hope empowers us all to help AMA’s efforts to fund research, fight for stronger public health policies and provide critical tools and information to save and improve the lives of our friends and loved ones.”
