Tarrytown House Offers Unique Winter Getaway Package that Gives Back to the Local Community
âWinter Wonderlandâ Package Benefits Local Habitat for Humanity Group
Tarrytown, NY (January 2009) Guests booking a âWinter Wonderlandâ package with The Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center will be able to enjoy not only the relaxation of a cozy winter retreat in the Hudson Valley, but also the added warmth of knowing that their getaway is helping to provide shelter for others.
Beginning this month, the Tarrytown House is offering a âWinter Wonderlandâ package that will also benefit Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit, ecumenical housing ministry that provides affordable housing for families in need. From now through March, the hotel and conference center will donate $5 for every room night booked for this package to the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.
The âWinter Wonderlandâ package includes deluxe overnight accommodations for two, two complementary glasses of wine in the hotelâs Cellar 49 restaurant, and breakfast for two â starting at just $159 per night.
As part of this contribution, some 15 Tarrytown House employees will participate in Habitat for Humanityâs home-building event scheduled to take place in a nearby community in Westchester County on Dr. Martin Luther King Day.
âWe are so excited to be a part of such wonderful opportunity to help provide funding for Habitat for Humanity and all of the great work they do here in Westchester and throughout the world,â said Joe Santore, General Manager. âWe are proud to support this remarkable organization and to give something back to our local community.â
Since its inception in 1976, Habitat for Humanity has built more than 300,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1.5 million people in more than 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans. The homeownersâ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses. In addition to a down payment and the monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
