No Monday blues when Marriott’s in the room

On Monday, January 13 more than 30 of our local Marriott associates came down to start their week off strong at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. It was a chance for us to celebrate their successes, welcome new faces to the Phoenix Children’s family and we even were visited by a special guest and Phoenix Children’s patient, Lorenzo.

We are always so grateful when our partners chose to spend time away from their busy days, and visit with us. It is extra meaningful any time that Marriott is in the room, since they are Phoenix Children’s Hospital (and CMN’s) very first corporate partner. The year that Phoenix Children’s Hospital was born, is the year that Marriott began working with us. It is no exaggeration to say, “They have been with us every step of the way.”

We reminisced on some of “those days” as well as planned for future success and goals. Between their extremely successful golf tournament, Torch Relay, Root Beer Float Day, chocolate chip cookie sales and partnership with Pepsi, seen through their Aquafina sales – if Marriott is one thing, they are creative about ways to fundraise for patients. We are so excited for what 2020 will bring the Marriott and Phoenix Children’s partnership and can only imagine what we will be celebrating 37 years from now! Although, we definitely will see them again before then…
