Ottawa Marriott Hotel Teams Up for Kisses for Kids

Fund-Raising Event Benefits Children's Miracle Network and CHEO

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - Raising funds for Children's Miracle Network and the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) is the heart and soul of 9th Annual Kisses for Kids event. Planned for Wednesday, August 31, 2011 and held at an impressive hotel near Rideau Canal the 9th annual event is sure to deliver donations and spread meaningful information about children's health.

Prizes, BBQ and Starbucks coffee are on the agenda for this fun-filled fund-raiser at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel, where guests and locals are encouraged to participate and support children's health in the Ottawa area. The Marriott has picked up support of this worthwhile event and welcomes everyone to stop by for a Starbucks coffee from 6:30 to 11 a.m., with 100 percent of the sales proceeds to benefit CHEO. For a spectacular lunch break, this Ottawa hotel's staff will be serving Chef Bowen's spectacular BBQ from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and there will be silent and live auctions with prizes to include hotel stays, dinners, spa packages and more!

Last year's Kisses for Kids raised $17,000 to help the hospital meet its goals in providing a wide variety of pediatric programs, research, equipment, education and assistance to families in crisis. Fund-raising events like Kisses for Kids are an important means of ensuring the hospital stays on the forefront of exceptional pediatric health care and as one of the premier downtown Ottawa family hotels, the Marriott is proud to sponsor the event.

Local business executives, shoppers and area residents are invited to come by the Marriott on Wednesday and join hotel guests in support of CHEO and experience the Marriott's warm and friendly atmosphere while enjoying a cup of Starbucks or some of Chef Bowen's fabulous BBQ for a tantalizing break from the normal lunchtime routine. The hotel features free Wi-Fi in public areas so busy executives can "work through" their lunch while supporting CHEO.
