As usual, a great deal is going on at Global Traveler. We just enjoyed the most successful Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Red & White Ball in the history of the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter, during which LLS honored Global Traveler for its fundraising efforts. We owe that success to our airline and hotel clients who donate tickets and accommodations to our annual silent auction to benefit LLS, as well as our readers who go online to bid. In May, our 13th Wines on the Wing International First Class and Business Class Airline Wine Competition will take place at the INNSIDE New York NoMad located on West 27th Street. This new hotel just steps away from the Empire State Building graciously offered to host the May 10 event, which features a professional blind tasting and judging followed by a reception. We’re also gearing up for our Leisure Lifestyle Awards, to be held May 19 at the Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. This event now boasts more than 40 award winners specializing in luxury leisure travel and goods. We will also present four Special Achievement Awards ranging from social responsibility to environmental achievements. It promises to be a fun-filled, exciting evening under the stars on the Sofitel’s pool deck. After the awards, I’m heading to Myrtle Beach for my annual golf “tune-up” trip. I’ll play some eight rounds of golf over the course of four days, leaving little time to do anything else but sleep. I hope to return with some golf reports for GT. Next up? Our annual Global Traveler conference, this year in Prince William & Manassas, Va. We will discuss the coming year’s business while taking in this beautiful and historic area of the United States. I’ve scheduled a round of golf at the Potomac Shores Golf Club with Advisory Board member Christopher Ottaunick, which I’ll review for the magazine. This, coupled with various activities and visits to Civil War battle sites, will make it one of our most interesting conferences to date. I’ll save the summer agenda for subsequent issues. Needless to say, we have a lot of activities between then and now to keep us busy so we can update you on the business and leisure activities available to us all. Enjoy the final days of spring!
