In 1996, Miguel Knudson, Senior Concierge at the Sutton Place Hotel, was named the Canadian Chairperson for the Les Clefs d’Or Foundation of the Americas. Miguel still holds that position today, so this is his 20th year on the Board of Trustees of the Foundation. Bravo Miguel for representing Les Clefs d’Or Canada for 20 years!
The Foundation was created in 1990 in response to the illness and loss of several of our members from AIDS. At the time, our community was devastated by the AIDS epidemic and we wanted to do something to help our colleagues, even if it was only a symbolic gesture. In short, we wanted to let people know that we cared about their suffering.
