Plymouth, MA – July 31, 2019 – Root Beer Floats are sure to win over the hearts of Plymouth residents come August, as the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Plymouth is set to host an annual fundraiser in support of its long-standing support of non-profit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Locals, visitors and guests alike are invited to partake in the Root Beer Float Day fundraiser on August 7, 2019 at the hotel.
Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Plymouth associates will offer root beer floats to guests in exchange for a donation to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital Boston Children’s Hospital. Visit the hotel at 16 Plaza Way in Plymouth, MA from 3pm – 8pm on Wednesday, August 7th to make your donation.
“We are honored to be a part of something so special that supports an amazing organization like the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” says Daralyn Covell, hotel general manager. “As proud members of the Plymouth community, we look forward to representing the Marriott name and are happy to provide any contributions from this event to such a worthy cause.”
During the week of August 5, participating Marriott International hotels throughout the United States and Canada will host root beer floats fundraising activities with the proceeds going directly to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Root Beer Float Day is a nod to Marriott’s beginnings when company founder, Bill Marriott, Sr., and his wife Alice opened two root beer stands in Washington, D.C., in the 1920s.
“We wouldn’t be the organization we are today without the support of Marriott as our longest-standing corporate partner,” said John Lauck, president and CEO, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Marriott associates and guests are among the most passionate fundraisers we have.”
Marriott associates and guests have raised $135 million in the last 35 years. The company fundraises through a variety of events and activities throughout the year. For more information, visit Marriott’s Community Engagement webpage.
