Cantore to Celebrate Blue Skies Rather than Stormy Skies
DESTIN, FL, June 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Nationally recognized meteorologist Jim Cantore will be at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort this Tuesday, July 3 to mark the opening of LeCiel, the resort's new boutique hotel experience.
Cantore will speak at a special breakfast cosponsored by Sandestin Real Estate and hosted by the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday at 8 a.m. at LeCiel Patio & Pool Deck.
Known for his expert commentary on storms, Cantore will help celebrate this opening and the positive tourism season while sharing some of his meteorological wisdom with the group. As an avid guest of the resort, Cantore is very familiar with the Destin area.
Cantore has been with The Weather Channel (TWC) for more than 25 years. Though he is best known for his live field coverage of major weather events his contributions span well beyond severe weather field reporting. He has covered from events such as the Space Shuttle Discovery launch, the Olympics Games, NFL games and more. Aside from live reporting and anchoring for TWC, Cantore also serves as the narrator on the TWC series Storm Stories and is often seen on NBC-TV on Today and as an expert commentator on news broadcasts.
On Tuesday morning, Sandestin along with Sandestin Real Estate, the Destin Area Chamber and breakfast attendees will cut the official opening ribbon for LeCiel.
Located on the banks of the Choctawhatchee Bay, LeCiel offers a tranquil setting with sounds of water and stunning views to provide the backdrop. As a result, it is very fitting that this boutique hotel is named LeCiel, French for the word sky.
Sandestin has invested more than $2 million in this elegant property transformation, including a rich mixture of chrome, woods, copper, leather and fabrics, guests enjoy water walls, tranquil colors. Contrary to its contemporary comfort and look, the property is rich in history as it is at the site of one of Sandestin's first multistory resort properties.
People interested in attending the event must register in advance by tomorrow, Friday, June 29. The cost is $15 for Destin Area Chamber Members and $25 for non-members. Call the Destin Area Chamber at (850) 837-6241 or visit www.destinchamber.com to register.
