DENVER, Aug. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Answering the call to those who have served our country, the National hotel company RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) (NYSE:RLH) has joined forces with the Lifetime® TV mini-series, Military Makeover®, in their mission to give back to members of the military and their loved ones. The show enlists the help of design and home renovation experts to transform the homes of military families across the country.
RLHC was honored to host Lance Cpl. Michael Adams and his family at the Red Lion Hotel Orlando-Kissimmee property throughout the renovation process. Lance Cpl. Adams joined the military in 2003 where he served as a heavy equipment operator as well as a member of the military police. Adams suffered from multiple injuries and was diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD after his vehicle ran over a double stack anti-tank mine.
“We are proud to work with Military Makeover and raise awareness for the importance of making sure our troops receive the treatment they deserve when they return home,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Bill Linehan. “RLHC is committed to giving back to those who have served our country and understands the importance of having a solid foundation to come home to. We recognize the many sacrifices Michael and his family have made to serve and protect our country and feel privileged to be able to help in this process.”
Michael currently lives with his wife, service dog and two daughters, one of which suffers from severe medical ailments. While Military Makeover’s expert team transformed the Adams’ home, RLHC and the staff at Red Lion Hotel Orlando-Kissimmee welcomed the family to experience the newly renovated property along with tickets to Walt Disney World theme park. The reveal will be featured on an upcoming three-part episode airing at 7:30 a.m. ET/PT on August 18, September 1 and 15.
