LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 10, 2017) – The International SPA Association (ISPA) is pleased to announce the global spa community will provide food for 16,000 children in need by attending the 2017 ISPA Conference & Expo. All attendees will receive a FEED Bag thanks to ISPA Platinum Sponsor ResortSuite and proceeds for each bag supplies 10 meals for the World Food Programme. The 27th annual ISPA Conference & Expo will be held at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas October 16-18.
In addition to the meals it provided, FEED donated US$5 for every purchase during the month of September to hurricane relief efforts through its local giving partner, Feeding America. Feeding America is working around the clock to help those devastated in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico.
“We are honored to partner with FEED and ResortSuite to provide meals to children around the world,” said ISPA President Lynne McNees. “FEED’s mission is a valuable contribution that we are grateful to share with our industry. We are proud to work with ResortSuite, a longtime supporter of ISPA and the spa community.”
