Raise a Mug for Miracles in August

Save the date and make plans to join the teams from the Courtyard by Marriott and the Marriott TownePlace Suites this August.

They’re hosting their annual Root Beer Float Week starting on Monday, August 9. This year, they’re bringing the celebration to YOU! That’s right! This is a great opportunity to celebrate your employees, celebrate summer, and celebrate the miracles.

Since 1983, Marriott has been serving up miracles for children’s hospitals in the United States and Canada, including EMMC. Employees and guests raise these funds through various events, including a summertime favorite, Root Beer Float Week. Why root beer floats? Marriott’s “roots” started when JW and Alice Marriott opened a Hot Shoppe in 1927.

Treat your employees to root beer floats for a donation to EMMC. Every penny raised will help the hospital fund the life-saving therapies, highly specialized medical equipment, research, advanced training for staff, and family assistance needed to ensure kids have the very best healthcare, as close to home as Bangor.

A root beer float kit is tailored to your team, and it includes A&W root beer, vanilla ice cream, cups, straws, and Marriott’s miracle-making root beer float recipe.

To reserve your kits and learn how to make a donation, please call or email Erica Whitten, director of Sales, at 207.299.9073 |
