Host Recognized as Top Fundraising Team in Best Buddies Friendship Walk's History


This year, Host Hotels & Resorts’ employees selected Best Buddies Friendship Walk - Capital Region for our company-sponsored walk. The 2017 Walk Committee set a fundraising goal of $80,000 and organized a bake sale, karaoke event and internal online auction to raise funds. Through proceeds from these events, in addition to company contributions and PTO donated by employees, Host surpassed its goal, raising over $83,500 for Best Buddies.

“Not only did we exceed our goal but we were recognized as the highest fundraising walk team in Best Buddies’ Friendship Walk history,” said Walk Committee Chair Karen Montague. “We were able to reach this success because of our employees who are so generous and supportive of our Walk and giving back to our community.”

On October 21, Host employees and friends participated in the Friendship Walk on the National Mall.
