Local hotel giving away free wedding


Greene County News



FAIRBORN – The Holiday Inn Dayton Fairborn has launched a social campaign that will give a dream wedding to one deserving couple.

The newly-renovated hotel, which is owned and managed by Portfolio Hotels and Resorts, has been a devout community supporter, having for example recently donated funds and manpower building homes for locals in need. Management is now challenging perspective brides-and-grooms to show how strong their charitable arm is by sharing a short video demonstrating their philanthropic efforts. The winner will receive a free wedding reception in the hotel’s Grand Ballroom in 2018.

“We’re giving back to the givers,” said Catering Sales Manager at Holiday Inn Dayton Fairborn Kalyn Leeper, adding that she has years of experience planning weddings. “We will be there every step of the way, from the initial site tour to the final tasting, to ensure the perfect dream wedding experience.”

To qualify for the Future Wedding Giveaway, perspective brides and/or grooms must create a video around one minute in length that demonstrates how they give back to the community. Contestants are urged to use creativity in showing how they possess community spirit. Whether it’s volunteer work for a non-profit, or simply cooking dinner for an elderly neighbor, any example of charity or goodwill is accepted and welcomed. They should post the video anytime between now and Sunday, Oct. 1 to Holiday Inn Dayton Fairborn’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/freshmodernbetter/, then ask family and friends to share their post. The video with the most likes come Sweetest Day (Saturday, Oct. 21) wins the free wedding.

After Holiday Inn Dayton Fairborn announces the winners on Sweetest Day, they will work with the couple on picking a wedding date sometime in 2018 based on availability. The entire wedding giveaway package is a total value of more than $10,000.

Included in the free wedding package will be: Use of the Grand Ballroom for up to 275 people; Food and beverage, flowers and center pieces; Dance floor and staging; Tables, linens, colored napkins, overlays, sashes and service; A honeymoon bridal suite – with deep discounts offered on extras like chair covers, special lighting and cake.
