The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner Welcomes Students for Holiday Tradition

Seventy students from The Boys and Girls Club of Washington, DC, Fairfax Region to attend afternoon tea, performance and career discussion

McLean, VA. – November 6, 2012 – On November 19, the ladies and gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner will welcome seventy students from The Boys and Girls Clubs of Washington, DC, Fairfax Region to enjoy a classic afternoon tea and performance of The Nutcracker Ballet.

“At The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner, we celebrate many holiday traditions, but our Nutcracker Tea with The Boys and Girls Club remains a favorite,” Emanuele Fissore, Director of Food and Beverage, said. “I’m never sure who has more fun at this event – our Ladies and Gentleman or the children!”

On Monday afternoon, students aged five to 17 will leave the school bus behind and enter the magical world of The Ritz-Carlton at the holidays. Over afternoon tea and pastries, students will watch a contemporary performance of The Nutcracker from the Creative Dance Center, through the Institute of Performing Arts for Youth. Following the performance, students will break into smaller groups, where they will have the opportunity ask members of The Ritz-Carlton's Guidance Team about careers in the service industry and hotel life.

2012 marks the third year of holiday celebrations with The Boys and Girls Club of Fairfax County. In 2010, The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner chose The Boys and Girls Clubs of Washington, DC, Fairfax Region as its primary partner for The Ritz-Carlton’s community outreach promise, Community Footprints. Since then, The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner has held many events to support the organization, through both hotel experiences and donations. Past events have included holiday dinners and gingerbread decorating classes with the students, holiday gift bag donations, a golf tournament and The World’s Fanciest Rummage sale.
