'Ruffception' Welcomes Canine Ambassador Edie
Washington's Fairmont welcomed Fairmont Pittsburgh’s Canine Ambassador Edie to a “Ruffception” on Aug. 15, where the pearl bedecked canine held court with her hotel’s P.R. manager Julie Abramovic. After training as an assistant dog, Edie’s outgoing personality pinpointed her for the hospitality industry where she greets hotel guests with style. She chose a monogramed scarf for her next day appearance at the hotel’s midday 4th Annual Sustainability Fair. Exhibitors showcased the eco-efforts of many local organizations as well as the hotel’s own green program with guests enjoying treats from the Fairmont’s garden and rooftop beehives.
