Thanks for your replies.
Our Reunion was held in South Beach, Miami, Florida this past August. It was very successful. We decided to market ourselves as a family unit that would generate revenue to the city. We raised over $10,000 in gifts, tours, and prizes. It took some research and teamwork on the behalf of very committed family members. But it worked! The Hotel gave bulk rates, did not charge us for incidental or other pre-determine fees (read those contracts!!). They participated in our Luau and closing raffle (with a free night at the hotel and a $150 gift certificate at one of the fine restaurants in the Hotel. The first 7-10 people, who reserved their rooms, received very lovely amenities. It was great!! Market yourselves! Lena
