HFTP Adds "HFTP Helps" to its Social Outreach Efforts

Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) is adding to its community giving efforts with HFTP Helps. The first portion of the program, HITEC Helps, held this year in Austin, Texas, supported the United Way for Greater Austin during the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC) and raised over $15,000 in support of the Austin-areas’ Memorial Day flood victims.
Riding off of the generous outreach from HFTP members and HITEC participants, HFTP decided to create HFTP Helps, which will identify and serve a need in a community near the location of their Annual Convention & Tradeshow each October.
This year, HFTP Helps will benefit the disaster relief fund of the Northwest Region American Red Cross. Participants will help people affected by disasters, such as the western wildfires and countless other crises. Each monetary donation and silent auction gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small. Join HFTP in assisting the American Red Cross as they prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
HFTP Helps will be comprised of a silent auction on October 23 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue in Bellevue, Wash. during HFTP’s Annual Convention & Tradeshow. Attendees will have the option to bid on numerous items such as hotel stays, rounds of golf and bottles of wine from donors around the world. The silent auction will be held during the Annual Convention & Tradeshow’s President’s Evening. For those who wish to simply donate funds, an online portal has been set-up for convenience.
