2019 is a banner year for us here at the Alden Suites Beachfront Resort. Fifty years after Robert and Gennifer Renfrow purchased a small beachfront motel called the Alden, this year the Alden Suites Beachfront Resort celebrates its 50-year anniversary of ownership by the Renfrow family. Over the past five decades the property has grown exponentially, with two new all-suite towers and several top-to-bottom renovations. It has evolved from a small motel into a full-scale beachfront family resort with two pools, a hot tub, two tennis courts, and a Cabana Beach Bar.
To commemorate this major milestone the Alden Suites Beachfront Resort has launched a year-long Golden Anniversary campaign that invites our guests to celebrate the many things they love about the Alden. The 50th Anniversary celebration begins in January 2019, and continues throughout the year, with a different element each month. Giveaways, charity highlights, contests, and exclusive vacation packages will bring the fun to each and every Alden guest, and to our local St. Pete Beach community.
And to kick it all off, we’re inviting YOU to participate in our #ALDENWOW50 Contest. Between January 4 and February 28, 2019, we are holding a contest for the best #ALDENWOW50 photo. The winner will receive a two-night stay at the Alden, a sunset sail on the Compass Rose from Dolphin Landing, dinner at Snappers Sea Grill, and their image on the Alden mural.
Past and present guests are invited to join the #ALDENWOW50 contest by sharing photos and memories gathered during any stay at the Alden Suites Beachfront Resort and tagging them with #ALDENWOW50. We’d especially like to see photos from years gone by, to show the history of our guests’ vacations at the Alden.
Select user photos will be shared on the brand’s social media channels, in a display in the Alden Suites reception area, and in a video at the 50th Anniversary celebration. One family will be chosen to be included in our commemorative mural painting, becoming a part of Alden history for all to see. If you’re not active on social media but you want to engage in the celebration, feel free to email photos or videos to the Alden team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are so excited to see your photos, and will be sharing more news soon about the big #ALDENWOW50 celebrations!
