Cheyenne Mountain Colorado Springs Launches Holiday Mission Codename: Military Merriment
Twelve Colorado military families will receive a holiday getaway filled with activities, fun and surprises!
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Nov. 1, 2017 – Colorado is home to eight military bases accounting for more than 35,000 active duty military. For many of these families, the holidays are an especially difficult time because mom or dad won’t be home. This holiday season, Cheyenne Mountain Colorado Springs, A Dolce Resort aims to ease this reality with its Military Merriment initiative. Twelve Colorado-based military families will receive a staycation at the AAA Four Diamond Resort. The gift will include a two-night stay with a stocking full of experiences and activities made possible through the resort and Colorado Springs Moms Blog. The highlight of the getaway will include a 30-minute Skype call each family will make to their deployed family member on the resort’s 120-inch big screen.
Starting Nov. 10 – Dec. 1, the public can nominate a deserving military family by completing a submission form online at coloradosprings.citymomsblog.com. To be eligible, families must be based in Colorado and have at least one child and one active duty parent deployed who will not be home for the holidays. Military Merriment is for immediate family members only, including spouse and/or partner, children and Fido. Staff at the resort will select the top 24 finalists and will then open it up to the public starting on Dec. 4 to vote for the final 12 winning families via Colorado Springs Moms Blog’s Facebook page. Votes must be posted by 5:00 PM on Dec. 8 and finalists will be posted on the resort’s website and Facebook page on Dec. 11.
With an estimated per family value of $890, each Military Merriment family recipient will receive:
- Complimentary two-night stay in a deluxe guest room on either Dec. 15-17 or Dec. 22-24
- On-property complimentary breakfast for the whole family during their stay
- On-property complimentary childcare for two hours at Kid’s Korner so mom or dad can enjoy a complimentary 50-minute massage at Alluvia Spa and Wellness Retreat
- Complimentary participation/entry in the resort’s planned holiday activities, including elf turndown service, gourmet hot cocoa by the fire, popcorn and a holiday movie, and more
- The opportunity to select from a myriad of donated items to assemble a “holiday care package” for their deployed parent, shipped overseas free of charge
- One 30-minute Skype session on the resort’s 120-inch big screen for the family to connect with their deployed loved one
“This holiday season, we wanted to do something special for the families who selflessly share their spouse or partner with us to keep our country safe,” said Scott Marn, managing director at Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado Springs, A Dolce Resort. “We wanted to let them know that their sacrifice does not go unnoticed and we hope that our recognition will give them a few new reasons to smile this holiday season.”
