InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta celebrated tonight the City’s SURVIVOR RESCUER REUNION in the Windsor Ballroom. Mr. Willie Hatchett, (in center) an EMT was in this year’s Peachtree Road Race and unfortunately collapsed in front of our Hotel, cardiac arrest. Our Doorman – Mr. Eric McMillian & Mr. David Buissereth – Securty Manager, went directly to Mr. Hatchett, laying on the street pavement with one of the Hotel’s AED units and with others revived Mr. Hatchett so he could be transported to Piedmont Hospital. They all caught Mr. Hatchett in time where he made a full recovery with no side effects. Thank you to our Eric, David & Mr. Hatchett for such a successful 4th of July!! #intercontinentallife #ihggivingforgood #survivorreunion #thankyou #EMT
Last month, members of our Development Team joined our friends at ihghotels for a volunteer session during their two-day #IHGGivingForGood event. Their staff created GED prep kits for our Women’s Academy participants. The kits included notes of encouragement, snacks, notebooks and other office supplies. They also put together hygiene kits for all of our programs. It was a blessing to have IHG’s Global CEO Keith Barr participate in this event, as well! Thank you, IHG, for your support and partnership in transforming lives.
