In addition to the total funds generated by the event’s ticket sales, the hotel also encouraged guests to contribute to the preservation of historic properties in Santa Monica by matching donations through the end of 2013.

“We wanted to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Georgian Hotel with more than just party and we felt that the important work being done by the Santa Monica Conservancy needed to be celebrated as well,” said Juan Viramontes, general manager of the Georgian Hotel.

The art deco Georgian Hotel, which opened in the spring of 1933, was one of Santa Monica’s first “skyscrapers.

“The Georgian is one of the historic buildings featured in our ongoing Downtown Walking Tour,” said Conservancy president, Carol Lemlein. “Hotel leaders have been strong partners to the Conservancy and we are deeply appreciative.”
