GONZALES, LA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - While the TownePlace Suites Baton Rouge Gonzales caters to guests from all over the world, this Baton Rouge extended-stay hotel is still, at its heart, a local business. As part of its investment in the community and local economic growth, the hotel is a proud member of the Ascension Chamber of Commerce and was happy to host a recent after-hours event.
On February 28, 2013, local business leaders gathered after work hours at this hotel in Gonzales, Louisiana to network, socialize and exchange ideas with one another. Attendees also got a sneak peek at the hotel's guest rooms and a tour of the facilities, which include two meeting rooms, a fully equipped business center, 24-hour market, fitness center and outdoor heated pool.
The event was also an opportunity for this Gonzales, Louisiana hotel to give back to the community by presenting a $2,500 check to Project Kidz Kove, which aims to provide community kids with a universally accessible park (the nearest is a 40-minute drive away). Ascension Parish is home to an estimated 20,000 children, 2,000 of whom are estimated to have a physical or developmental disability, and the organization's Kidz Kove Discovery Park will benefit them all.
Giving back is just part of what the Ascension Chamber of Commerce does. With more than 500 members, including this extended-stay hotel in Baton Rouge, LA, the nonprofit provides services, programs and assistance to businesses large and small. Members have the chance to participate in networking opportunities and promotional activities, as well as benefit from programs the Chamber refers to as Advertising Assistance, News You Can Use, Community Visibility, Educational Growth, Leadership Ascension and Professional Growth.
