On 23 July, Starwood Hotels & Resorts celebrated Iftar with taxi drivers from across the Middle East as part of its ongoing commitment to the Holy Month of Ramadan. Now in its fourth year, Starwood’s ‘Iftar for Cabs’ campaign brought more than 34 hotels from across the region including Four Points by Sheraton Bur Dubai together for a worthy cause. During the hour of Iftar, packs of food and beverages were distributed to cab drivers at the main entrance of each hotel.
Catering teams at each hotel prepared Iftar packs which included a diverse selection of food and beverage items. Associates from across various departments within the hotels, including catering, administration and guest services joined forces to bring the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative to life.
“Iftar for Cabs is our way to say thank you to the cab drivers across the Middle East,” said Guido de Wilde, Senior Vice President & Regional Director, Starwood Hotels & Resorts. “This initiative in now in its fourth year and represents the spirit of the Holy Month of Ramadan. We are extremely proud of all our associates who came together yesterday to make this year’s ‘Iftar for Cabs’ another big success and I want to thank them for their continued support.”
