North Tampa, FL Hotel Staff Volunteers for Dixie Wheelchair Athletic Association Games

A Rewarding Morning of Inspiration for Seven Fairfield Inn & Suites North Tampa Employees

TEMPLE TERRACE, FL--(Marketwire - May 23, 2012) - On Friday, May 11, 2012, seven employees at the Fairfield Inn & Suites North Tampa, a hotel near USF Tampa, hit the bulls eye on their target of giving back when they volunteered to organize the archery competition for the 32nd annual Dixie Wheelchair Athletic Association (DWAA) Games.

Held in Tampa, FL, near this family-friendly Tampa hotel, the games are hosted annually by the DWAA, who has been providing competitive and recreational sports opportunities to athletes with visual and physical disabilities for more than 30 years. This year's games, held May 11th through the 13th, featured participants as young as 10 and through adulthood, with disabilities ranging from the visually impaired to amputees to those with paralysis.

The volunteers from this North Tampa, FL hotel included general manager Katya Sljusar, sales coordinator Bret Peretz, front desk associate Michael Parsons, breakfast attendant Jean Byrne, front-office manager Matt Berry and housekeepers Voncia Whaley and Candace Haywood. Each of them finished the day inspired by the athletes and grateful for the opportunity to work within the community. To learn more about the DWAA and the games, visit
