West Virginia Marriott Locations Blow Root Beer Float Day out of the Water!!

Over the last two weeks, Marriott owned locations around West Virginia and the surrounding areas hosted Root Beer Float Days #FloatsForKids. Marriott friends, professionals and guests spent their time and money supporting our amazing Miracle Children, like Ziler, by raising over $1,500 FOR THE KIDS in just one day!

We were so impressed by these professionals, that we asked for short description of how they made their event such a success. Below are a few words from Charleston Marriott Towne Center’s amazing HR Generalist on how they made their event a huge success this year:

“While working through the details for this event our Director of Operations, Director of Human Resources, and Executive Chef collaborated to pull everything together. Our Director of Operations and Executive Chef were in charge of purchasing the root beer and contacting a local ice cream shop to see if they would be interested in donating for this event. Our Director of Human Resources and myself created and distributed communication for this event to include social media post, hotel signage, and word-of-mouth buzz. In the days leading up to this event our banquets department provided the bar setup that was used. Our Director of Operations purchased all of the yellow, red, and blue decorations that was used to capture guests attentions as they entered the hotel. Finally, on the day of this event one of our sales executives set a goal of $1,000 for this events and managers from different departments were tasked with taking shifts to help serve the floats.
Overall, I would contribute the success of this event to advanced planning, communication, teamwork, and support from hotel associates, guests, and the community including Ellen’s Homemade Ice Cream.”

Ziler agreed that the Marriott locations did an incredible job spreading funds and awareness for kids like her, by jingling her way through the Root Beer Float Days  😉 see video here: Ziler video

We are so thankful for our Marriott locations for the incredible teamwork that landed such successful Root Beer Float Days!
