• It was a good show, for good

    CWT Savvy Traveler
    Country music star Phil Vassar performed, fireworks went off and a good time was had by hundreds as part of CWT’s annual client event at the Global Business Travel Association convention last night in San Diego.

    Attendees were able to network, enjoy award-winning entertainment and be part of our effort to give back to local San Diego military families through the Academy of Country Music’s charitable arm, ACM Lifting Lives® and one of its beneficiaries, the Folds of Honor Foundation.

    The Folds of Honor Foundation gives back through scholarships and other assistance to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to our country. To date, the organization has awarded nearly 4,000 post-secondary scholarships and more than 250 children’s scholarship funds.

    In 2012 CWT supported Project Step, an organization in the Boston area that identifies musically talented children from underrepresented area communities and provides them with musical instruction. In 2011 we sponsored a home build with Habitat for Humanity in Denver.

    Here’s a quick glance at the event from 2013, with the reactions of attendees in social media:

    Fireworks, of course, are visible to anyone in the area. They caught the eye of another #GBTA2013 attendee. (@MarilesKrok photo)
