Woodlands Announces Program for Charities

May 15, 2013 - (PLAINS TOWNSHIP, Pa.) – The Woodlands Inn announced today that it is accepting applications for its “SKYY Vu Charity Events” program. Nonprofit and membership organizations and associations may participate. 


The program combines best practices in event fundraising with bonuses for the organization, creating meaningful opportunities to engage constituents and raise much needed funds. Each nonprofit is given a two-to-four-hour period to host a reception at the newly renovated SKYY Vu Deck Bar with a rain location of The Woodlands Executive Lounge.

The Woodlands is donating the use of the facility, sound equipment, and 50% of the bar net profits.  Additional fundraising opportunities include celebrity bartenders, silent auction, sponsorship and seat/table sales.

“Nonprofits that hit pre-defined attendance goals will receive bonuses, including free food, credits for a future event, and additional donations,” said Woodlands General Manager Rick Kornfeld. “It’s very exciting that an organization participating in this program could raise a thousand dollars (or more) in one day.”

Charity Events may be held on Sundays through Thursdays, now through October, based on availability.

(PLAINS TOWNSHIP, Pa.) – The Woodlands Inn announced today that it will host a “La Tolteca’s Cinco de Mayo Celebration” partnering with the popular Mexican Restaurant whose Wilkes-Barre Township location was severely damaged by a fire Sunday evening.  The event will be held on Sunday, May 5 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“La Tolteca is a long-time staple and community-minded business,” said Woodlands general manager Rick Kornfeld. “We hope that by providing the use of our facility to them they will not lose their biggest event of the year.”

La Tolteca owner Carlos DeLeon was moved by The Woodlands’ offer.

“While attendees won’t have our full menu to choose from, they will still enjoy traditional favorites including fajitas, rice and quesadillas, tacos, and rice and beans,” said DeLeon.

Indoor seating is available, along with outside al fresco dining at the Crescenzo’s Brick Oven Eatery deck, rooftop courtyard, and newly renovated SKYY Vu DeckBar.

There is no admission fee, but access to the buffet is $15.99 per person. Items from the Crescenzo’s Menu including a children’s menu are available. Beverages will be available for purchase including La Tolteca Margaritas and Mexican Cerveza.
