Last Tuesday, Ballston Lake-native Ric Jesmain was awarded the 2016 Saratoga Showcase of Homes Grand Prize drawing donated by Pavilion Grand Hotel and the independent businesses of Pavilion Square.

The grand prize package featured a two-night stay in a luxurious Penthouse Loft Suite, a bottle of champagne upon arrival, a specialty appetizer and small plate sampling from Fish at 30 Lake with wine pairings for six, breakfast for four guests in the morning at TC Paris, spa treatments for two guests from All Good Things Spa and complimentary valet parking - a $3,000 value.

This exclusive package showcases the many unique amenities featured inside the downtown Saratoga lifestyle boutique hotel, and will give the grand-prize winner a taste of all the specialty offerings located inside the hotel.

“This donation package is an amazing opportunity to experience all that our hotel has to offer,” said Susanne Simpson, GM of Pavilion Grand Hotel. “It’s all for a great cause and we’re honored to help raise contribute to these incredible charities through Saratoga Builders Association and helping make Saratoga the extraordinary community it is.”

The package was put together by Pavilion Grand Hotel on behalf of this year’s Saratoga Showcase of Homes as part of a donation that benefits two local charities - Rebuilding Together Saratoga County and Habitat for Humanity of Northern Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties. The Saratoga Builders Association will top the $1,000,000 mark with this year’s contribution from the past 21 years of this event.

Pavilion Grand Hotel was named one of twelve Grand Dame properties in New York State by I Love New York’s 2016 Travel Guide. The boutique hotel features some of the most unique suites in the entire region - from New York City to Lake Placid - including their signature Penthouse Loft Suites, two stories of indoor living space coupled with 1,500 square feet of outdoor terraces and rooftop gardens.

The certificate presentation ceremony was held on Tuesday, November 1 at the Pavilion Grand Hotel to award Mr. Jesmain on the grand prize winning. Photos with Mr. Jesmain were taken on the rooftop gardens of a Penthouse Loft Suite, as well as inside Fish at 30 Lake, Mazzone Hospitality’s newest seafood concept restaurant.
