Partner Spotlight- Maison Dupuy Hotel
This month’s Partner Spotlight would like to highlight the wonderful relationship between the French Quarter Hotel Maison Dupuy and Café Reconcile.
The Maison Dupuy and Café Reconcile have been partners for more than ten years, and this partnership only grew stronger when Mr. Ray Bruce, formerly of the Loews Hotel moved to the Maison Dupuy. Ray brought with him a long history of partnering with Reconcile, and mentoring our young people through internship and into first jobs.
In addition to the support The Maison Dupuy offers Café Reconcile students, The Maison Dupuy started a new event initiative in 2015 called “Sippin’ in the Courtyard.” The idea behind this event is to celebrate and honor the tenure of several long-term Maison Dupuy employees, while also fundraising on behalf of Café Reconcile. Every ‘Sippin’ event has a cork pull, and the proceeds from this initiative, plus one dollar from each specialty cocktail served goes directly to support Café Reconcile’s mission. Since the beginning of 2015, Maison Dupuy has donated nearly $10,000 in support of Café Reconcile and our students.
The prompt communication from the Maison Dupuy staff during internship, the constant communication about job openings, the continual willingness to take Café Reconcile students for internships-some of whom are immediately employable, some of whom are still working through some employment issues; the unceasing support of Café Reconcile’s mission, staff and students alike have made and continue to make this partnership a dream come true, both for Café Reconcile alumni who are Maison Dupuy employees, and the staff of Café Reconcile.
Café Reconcile cannot say enough how treasured, important, or valued the partnership with Maison Dupuy has been, and continues to be. From all the staff, students, and alumni at Café Reconcile, THANKS MAISON DUPUY!!!
