Tempe Hotel Wins Coveted Community Service Award for the State of Arizona – Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes Named Community Service Leader of the Year for Arizona

Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) March 28, 2015

The Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes, a luxury resort-style hotel in Tempe, Ariz., has won the highly coveted award as Community Service Leader of the Year for the State of Arizona. Selected by the Arizona Lodging and Tourism Association at their recent Stars of the Industry event, this distinction is the latest acknowledgement to be bestowed upon this award-winning Tempe hotel and resort.

Over the past decade weve built a reputation as the Cleanest and Friendliest hotel in the valley. This award solidifies our most important identity as our industrys community leader in the State of Arizona, said highly tenured General Manager, Steve Eberhart.

Renowned for its spectacular venues and breathtaking views, The Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes is emerging from over $ 14 million in renovations, including all guestrooms, meeting space, restaurants and the lobby. Popular with business and leisure travelers, as well as regional and national associations and non-profits, the resorts location next to Tempe Diablo Stadium – spring training home for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim – and proximity to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is ideal.

As corporate social responsibility gains momentum, area corporate neighbors such as Aetna, Bank of America, State Farm, Accenture, Hewlett-Packard, General Electric, and Well Fargo are being invited to align their charitable and community missions with The Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes. Equally, the hotels non-profit partners are finding The Buttes as the best choice to host their gala, fundraiser and seminar.

We are so grateful for the stellar service at Phoenix Marriott Tempe at The Buttes and Top of the Rock in connection with our 2nd Annual Dreams of Summer Gala. Southwest Kids Cancer Foundation (SWKCF) is ecstatic to partner with the hotel for next years gala (Saturday, February 27, 2015), said SWKCF board member Deb Kowalski. The motto of The Buttes Gives Back is certainly true as the hotel has helped to give children with cancer the chance to attend summer camp.

Highlights of The Marriott Buttes giving back include: 348 volunteer hours to the Ronald McDonald House: Cook Dinner program; 288 volunteer hours and $ 7,400 in donations to Culinary Delights; 275 volunteer hours in Marriotts Spirit to Serve program, and 175 volunteer hours with Habitat For Humanity. Over and above this effort, the hotels regionally acclaimed Executive Chef Greg Wiener has achieved tremendous results with his Think / Eat / Give menu in Top of the Rock. The T|E|G program selects one local charity per month and donates a portion of the proceeds from the special menu. The hotel raised more than $ 15,000 in 2014 and is pacing ahead in 2015.

With this type of community connectivity and momentum, our hotel is prepared to lead the state and our industry in the corporate social responsibility arena . . . not as a responsibility but rather as a true passion and mission, said Doug Varsano, Director of Sales and Marketing of the Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes.

Greenstar Cares About the California Water Shortage and Addresses Orange County Homeowners Plumbing Systems

Orange County, California (PRWEB) April 17, 2015

For the first time in history, Californias Governor Jerry Brown has ordered mandatory water use restrictions. These new water supply reductions are a direct result of the states four year drought. Greenstar Cares about the water shortage and comments on the importance of routine plumbing system maintenance or repair to prevent waste.

The Greenstar Cares Program strives to provide opportunities that improve the lives of individuals within the served communities. Greenstar Home Services is Orange County, California and Las Vegas, Nevadas leader in sustainable plumbing, HVAC maintenance, and whole home water filtration.

Greenstar notes that the water shortage plaguing much of southern California can be compounded by poor or failing plumbing systems. Leaking pipes can not only make homeowners water bill increase, but can lead to fines. Californias new water restriction laws will penalize offenders, many of the states municipalities and counties have passed ordinances with large fines associated with the waste of water by home owners or renters.

Colin Martodam, Greenstar COO states that putting off plumbing repairs even of the smallest nature lends itself to even larger issues with homes. Leaking water can damage walls, floors, furniture, and even the very foundation your home sits upon.

Greenstars repair experience shows that foundation or slab leaks can be the most costly damage a homeowner can incur, and is often the result of ignoring failing pipes or plumbing systems.

The good news is, you dont have wait until your foundation is crumbling to address the most common sense issues, comments Jeremy Prevost, Greenstar CEO. Greenstar Home Services specializes in preventing these types of plumbing problems and offers very affordable home inspections.
