Root Beer Float Day a Success!

The Courtyard by Marriott in White Oaks, WV hosted their second annual Root Beer Float Day to raise money for WVU Medicine Children’s. They raised over $600 in 2017 from this one-day event and wanted to make the event bigger by adding vendors, food trucks and appearances from popular children’s movies and T.V characters

Various crafts were set up so the kids that attended could make cards and bracelets to send to the kids currently being treated at WVU Children’s Hospital.

Marriott International holds the honorable distinction of being Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ longest standing corporate partner.  Since 1983 Marriott International has raised $115 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the country.  Its associates and guests raise these funds through hosting large scale events, icon campaigns, conducting unique fundraising events at individual properties, participating in the Torch Relay, and many more.
