09 Oct Protravel International Sponsors the 2018 Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival
Protravel donates luxury travel packages to support festival’s charitable causes
New York, NY (Oct. 4, 2018) — Luxury travel agency Protravel International will once again sponsor New York City’s biggest food festival, the Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (NYCWFF), which takes place Oct. 11-14. One of New York City’s most popular culinary festivals, NYCWFF will bring together more than 400 world-renowned chefs and culinary personalities and offer attendees a variety of culinary and entertainment experiences at over 75 events held at unique venues around the city. Protravel’s involvement will help support the festival’s charitable causes, No Kid Hungry® and Food Bank For New York City, through its donation of luxury travel packages which will be auctioned off during exclusive dinner events during the festival.
“Protravel International has a long history of crafting bespoke culinary experiences for clients so it’s an honor for us to align with an event that similarly strives to create memorable experiences for food and wine lovers,” said Becky Powell, President of Protravel International.
“Giving back is integral to who we are at Protravel, and we are proud to work with our partners to donate five incredible vacation experiences to be auctioned off with 100 percent of the proceeds going to help combat childhood hunger in America and New York City.”
“The high-end trips Protravel International has donated, coupled with the world-class cuisines offered, are key to helping us promote hunger awareness and raise much needed funds to help end hunger,” said Lee Brian Schrager, NYCWFF Festival Founder and Director. “We are grateful for Protravel’s help in assembling and generously donating these extraordinary travel packages this year.”
Together with its supplier partners, Protravel assembled five unique, luxurious trips for guests attending select NYCWFF dinners to bid on:
- A safari package from Wilderness Safari including three nights in their classic camp and flights on Wilderness Air.
- A seven-night sailing on one of Star Clippers’ tall ships with accommodations in an outside cabin.
- A two-night stay at Le Meurice in Paris, the luxury Dorchester Collection hotel, in a deluxe suite with full American breakfast.
- A two-night stay at Lanesborough London in a suite with spa treatments and tea for two.
- A London, Paris, Amsterdam vacation staying with two-nights in each location at THE SET hotels’ luxury boutique properties the Hotel Café Royal in London, the Conservatorium in Amsterdam and the Lutetia in Paris.
In addition to Protravel’s involvement in assembling the auction prizes, Protravel will also be on site during the festival with luxury travel advisors available to answer questions during Beverage Media presents Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits Trade Tasting hosted by Wine Spectator on Friday, Oct. 12 and the Grand Tasting presented by ShopRite featuring Culinary Demonstrations presented by Capital One® on Saturday, Oct. 13 and Sunday, Oct. 14 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Pier 94.
