Sheraton hosts fund-raiser for Jamaican employees

The Sheraton Steamboat Resort and Conference Center employs about two dozen Jamaican citizens.

In the past, the resort has celebrated two weddings and shared the birth of three babies with this portion of its seasonal staff. Now, the hotel is determined to be a friend to its transplanted staff, many of whom had homes damaged when Hurricane Ivan swamped Jamaica last month.

The Sheraton will hold a golf fund-raiser today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its Robert Trent II Jones golf course. Registration is $50, which includes greens and cart fees.

All proceeds go to Steamboat's Jamaican Relief Fund. The event is open to anyone; children younger than 15 must be accompanied by an adult. To schedule a tee time, call 879-1391.
