Carlos Cabrera Rides for Mental Health
November 2nd, 2015
You might say Carlos Cabrera has a “passion for our cause.” He so believes in the work being done by the David Lawrence Center that he took two days out of his life recently to cycle his way to Central Florida to raise money for us.
Cabrera is Senior Vice President of Global All Inclusive Operations for Hyatt Hotels. He is based in Bonita Springs. He decided to ride his bike to a national meeting Hyatt was conducting in Orlando after learning the theme would be about the purpose of his company.
Cabrera says, “I decided that a way I could bring purpose to life in my own personal way was to raise money for a local and caring organization that is dedicated to helping people be their best.”
He asked friends and clients to sponsor him on a per-mile basis for his two-day, 200 mile ride. As a result, he happily donated nearly $9,000 to DLC.
As for the cause, Cabrera believes we have a severe problem in society today with alcohol and drug abuse. He says that working in the hospitality industry, he sees evidence of this quite often. “The impact it is having on families, the workplace and society in general can be devastating.”
“We are so fortunate to have a facility like the David Lawrence Center doing such good work and offering so many services. I feel as a business community we have to do all we can to support it.”
