BRISBANE, Australia - Hilton Brisbane hosted its annual ‘Tenners Dinner' held in November 2011. The ‘Tenners' dinner is a celebration of team members who have more than ten years of service with Hilton Hotels & Resorts.

875 combined years of service and forty-eight Hilton Brisbane team members form what is known as the ‘Tenners Club' which in 2011 welcomed an additional eight team members to the club. The hotel created a memorable experience for the long serving team members with a cruise on a luxury catamaran along the Gold Coast broadwater followed by a three course dinner at a well-known restaurant that had hosted the likes of Kylie Minogue, Russell Crowe and Goldie Hawn, a setting befit for the Tenners celebrations. The group feasted on Champagne and fresh Queensland seafood and produce for which the Gold Coast is renowned for.

Each year the Tenners Dinner is held to ensure that our long serving team members feel cared, valued and respected for. Hilton Brisbane General Manager Martin Kendall said the dinner series is an opportunity to showcase the hard word work and contribution the team members have made to Hilton and we try each year to provide a new, exciting and memorable experience.

The dinner has been held annually since 2004 and, in 2011 for the first time the club honored two generations of service -father and daughter.

‘We always look forward to hosting the annual ‘Tenners Dinner' it's an opportunity for us to celebrate the achievements of our long standing team members. This year was a wonderful relaxed evening with great food, wine and lots of memories; we look forward to welcoming new editions to the ‘Tenners Club' in 2012'
