MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 16, 2014 — Ellen Kosmoski, event coordinator for the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, has been awarded the 2014 second quarter Hospitality Hero award from Meet Minneapolis, Convention and Visitors Association. The award honors an individual or company who has contributed significantly to the public image of Minneapolis through outstanding hospitality and service.

Kosmoski was nominated by Britney Parker, a Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board’s colleague. Parker has been continuously impressed with Kosmoski’s willingness to go the extra mile in providing service to visitors and her commitment to demonstrating pride in Minneapolis’ hospitality industry.   

“She demonstrates hospitality every day guiding brides and people through our beautiful park system in Minneapolis,” said Parker. ”She helps ease the anxiety and stress out of planning a wedding or special event.”

Kosmoski has been with the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board for the past two and a half years. She represents more than 22 parks for ceremonies each summer coordinating over 200 weddings. Due to Kosmoski’s commitment, guests are able to gain a better understanding of Minneapolis and its parks, enhancing the guest experience and their desire to return to the city.

The Meet Minneapolis Hospitality Hero award is given quarterly to members of the Minneapolis hospitality community who have been nominated by their peers.
