Dawn Lopez and Laura Goldberg of Concord, California took the opportunity to nominate Karen and this is what they said about her:
“Karen was so incredibly helpful. She assisted us in planning our stay. She made reservations for dinners, suggested excellent excursions as well. She was friendly, respectful and extremely helpful. She is the type of person you want to meet wherever you may go. Kudos to her!”
About the Victoria Hospitality Award program
The Victoria Hospitality Award program was founded in 1994. A not-for-profit society was formed with a mandate to recognize individuals from the Greater Victoria area for outstanding hospitality. Outstanding hospitality is defined as a random act of kindness that goes over and above the expected to meet the needs of an individual.
Committee members meet monthly to review ballots received and to select a winner. Monthly winners are presented with a signed Victoria Hospitality Award Program certificate, a letter of commendation, a City of Victoria pin engraved with the winner’s name, and numerous other gifts from Committee members representing various sectors of our community. The Society hosts a Special Event annually to honour all nominees and monthly winners.
