"Iftar for Cabs" 2012 at the Sheraton Riyadh headed by Paul Dunphy, Hotel GM
Now in its third year, Starwood’s ‘Iftar for Cabs’ campaign brought more than 30 hotels from across the region, including Sheraton Riyadh Hotel & Towers, together for a worthy cause. During the hour of Iftar, packs of food and beverages were distributed to cab drivers at the main entrance of each hotel.
Catering teams at each hotel prepared Iftar packs which included a diverse selection of food and beverage items. Associates from across various departments within the hotels, including Catering, Administration and Guest Services joined forces to bring the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative to life.
“Iftar for Cabs is our way to reach out and say thank you to the cab drivers across the Middle East. This initiative represents the spirit of the Holy Month of Ramadan and we are extremely proud of all our associates who came together to make the third edition of ‘Iftar for Cabs’ a big success,” said Guido de Wilde, Senior Vice President & Regional Director, Starwood Hotels & Resorts
