The hotel group putting heart into hospitality

A Queensland hotel group is teaming up with the Make-A-Wish charity to raise $100,000 towards helping sick children enjoy dream experiences.

ULTIQA Hotels & Resorts has committed to donate the funds to Make-A-Wish over a two-year partnership term, looking to raise funds through its website by asking guests to opt-in to donate to the cause with each accommodation booking. Guests will also be able to round up their final bill, with the extra proceeds donated to the charity.

Further fundraising initiatives will operate through ULTIQA Lifestyle – a points-based holiday membership system. The company will donate $50 from each new membership and $5 from each holiday tour to Make-A-Wish Australia.

CEO Mark Henry expressed his and the company’s pride in partnering with the charity for such a worthy cause.

“As a family owned and operated business, we are so proud to be supporting the incredible efforts of Make-A-Wish as they provide hope and strength to children fighting critical illness, and families,all across Australia by making life-changing wishes come true,” he said.

ULTIQA properties are located on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane, Caloundra and Melbourne.

“The partnership is more than just a fundraising initiative, as we also hope to raise awareness of Make-A-Wish across our six properties,” said Mr Henry.

“We are keen to shine a light on the amazing work they do including granting wishes for children and teenagers battling with life-threatening medical conditions.”

Make-A-Wish has been dedicated to granting bespoke wishes for children and teenagers for

more than thirty years.

 CEO Sally Bateman said: “We are thrilled to partner with ULTIQA Hotels & Resorts.
