Curt Weiss & Central Park Management named Steamboat Philanthropists of the Year
The leadership and staff at Central Park Management have been giving back for years, but owner Curt Weiss said it feels good to be recognized for the effort.
"We have been doing this for years, but it nice to be honored for something that you do automatically," Weiss said. "Between giving money and in-kind service in storage units, we donate to well over 50 organizations in town."
Weiss said Central Park Management is a small, family-run company, and he is proud that his business reflects his own family’s values.
"We have a staff of 25 people and a lot of those people are sitting on boards or doing in-kind service and stuff like that," Weiss said "It's something our whole staff does, not just us."
He believes giving back is a big reason why Steamboat is a great place to live and was a great place to raise his four children.
"It's real important to support your community however you can. That's who we are as a community, and it's real important," Weiss said. "It's an honor to be a part of this community."
Weiss first came to Steamboat Springs in 1971 and then moved here permanently in 1973 with his wife, Mary. He started running Central Park Plaza, which got its start as Funco, 40 years ago.
