SAN ANTONIO, TX – October 16, 2018 – Valencia Group hotels in Texas are approaching their fifth year in support of No Shave November.  Three properties, including Lone Star Court in Austin, Texas, Cavalry Court in College Station, Texas, and the soon to be completed Texican Court in Irving’s Las Colinas Urban Center in Irving, Texas will each select managers to throw away their razors for the month in the goal of raising eyes and awareness for cancer prevention.  From each of those areas, we have chosen local celebrities to participate.

Throughout November, guests can anticipate 20% of sales from beverage items will benefit the American Cancer Society. In true Valencia Group style, visitors can expect to see a range of creative and limited availability specialty cocktails such as the Mustache Mule and Manly Margarita adorned with handlebar straws.

“No Shave November is a fun and casual way of building awareness that impacts the lives of so many.  By getting our staff involved as well as a few local celebrities, we find ourselves working together as a TEAM to build awareness, promote and encourage specific sales to give back to the cause, and support those who may be experiencing this disease directly or indirectly.  Giving back to the community fits our brand goals and creates a caring bond by participating,” says Marcus Latner, GM of Cavalry Court.
