Diamond Resorts Honored by American Business Awards For Providing 10,000 Free Room Nights to Medical Workers and First Responders
Thursday, May 13, 2021
Diamond Resorts has recently been honored with several Stevie Awards as part of the 19th Annual American Business Awards. These awards recognize the accomplishments of America’s businesses and nonprofits. Diamond Resorts received awards that recognized the company for its responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions, and the leadership of Diamond Resorts CEO Mike Flaskey.
When COVID-19 hit, Diamond Resorts were forced to close resorts. The company then launched a global initiative to help provide those responding to the pandemic with comfortable and convenient places to stay. The free accommodations offered for medical personnel and other first responders ended up resulting in more than 10,000 nights given away.
Diamond Resorts was also honored for its annual Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions. The tournament’s charity auction has raised more than $4.3 million for charity since 2013.
The full list of Stevie Awards presented to Diamond Resorts include:
- Most Valuable Corporate Response: 10,000 Free Nights for Frontline Healthcare Workers (Gold Level)
- Sporting Event: 2020 Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions (Gold Level)
- Maverick of the Year: Mike Flaskey (Silver Level)
- Communications Campaign, Social Media Focus: #DiamondLIVE @ Home (Bronze Level)
“It’s an honor to be recognized for our efforts over the past year as we’ve remained focused on staying innovative, providing amazing experiences for our members and also giving back to the community,” said Diamond Resorts CEO Mike Flaskey. “Now as more people are getting back to a new normal, we’re seeing significant demand from our members, owners and guests who can’t wait to get back out and start traveling again. We’re glad to see it and excited to welcome our members and guests back to their home away from home.”
