On May 1, Radisson Blu Mall of America hosted their Grand Opening party, and officially opened as the second new Radisson Blu property in the United States. More than 500 people turned out for the festivities, including hotel designer Jim Hamilton, of Graven Images.
This soirée was not just a party, however. It was also a philanthropic event that raised more than $30,000. Following the Carlson core value that giving back to the community is important, there was a silent auction offering unique Blu packages from around the globe. Auction proceeds benefit the World Childhood Foundation.
The highlight of the evening was the ribbon-cutting, officially “opening” the hotel. Congratulations to Radisson Blu Mall of America on a successful opening event!
