EECM Joins in Celebration of Opening of Tryp by Wyndham in Pittsburgh

 

Pittsburgh, PA – EECM’s CEO & President Carole Bailey along with EECM’s Sewing Program Manager Hannah Moon joined in the June 6th celebration of the official opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of the TRYP BY WYNDHAM located in the former Washington Education Center in Lawrenceville. The 108-room boutique hotel, which has deep neighborhood roots, was built into the former 150-year-old school building, which is perched at the base of Pittsburgh’s 40th Street Bridge, and has magnificent views of the city from its roof top restaurant Over Eden.

The TRYP BY WYNDHAM is Pittsburgh’s first art hotel and features art by over 30 local artists. EECM is proud to be a featured artist as it created the aprons for the hotel’s culinary staff. Amongst the programs and services that EECM provides, EECM helps people who have barriers to employment by providing them with training in the textile industry through its sewing program. Geoff Ballotti, President & CEO of WYNDHAM Hotels and Resorts, and Anthony Emanuelo, VP of TRYP Brand and International Operations, flew in for this special event and delivered remarks to invited guests, artists and the press. “The contributions that the new TRYP BY WYNDHAM brings to Lawrenceville and our great City of Pittsburgh are highly significant. EECM is delighted to be a part of this exciting destination that is reflective of Pittsburgh’s history, art and people,” said Carole Bailey, EECM’s President & CEO.
