SAN ANTONIO, TX – October 26, 2015 – Valencia Group hotels in Texas, California and Missouri are approaching their third year in support of No Shave November. Five properties, including Hotel Valencia Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX, Lone Star Court in Austin, TX, Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE in Houston, TX, Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, MO and Hotel Valencia Santana Row in San Jose, CA will each select managers to throw away their razors for the month in the goal of raising eyes and awareness for cancer prevention.
