Premier Hotel in Downtown Ottawa Is Making Miracles for CHEO

Ottawa Marriott Miracles for CHEO Benefits Research and Raises Resources for Children's Health

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2014) - Ottawa Marriott Hotel will be hosting the 12th annual Ottawa Marriott Miracles for CHEO event. Raising funds for and awareness of children's health has been the heartbeat of the hotel's longstanding partnership with the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Representatives from Marriott, CHEO, and event radio sponsor 105.3 Kiss FM will be gathered at Marriott's Ottawa Parliament Hill hotel on Thursday, August 21st 2014 to collect donations and share information about this imperative cause.

The agenda for this day of fun and philanthropy at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel begins bright and early. Guests and locals are encouraged to show their support for children's health in the Ottawa area and are welcomed to enjoy a Starbucks coffee to jumpstart their day. From 6:30AM-11:00AM 100% of sales proceeds will benefit CHEO. Marriott's support rallied for this worthy cause is unmatched by hotels in Ottawa. From 11:30AM-2:00PM they are taking this event to the next level. A mouthwatering barbeque will be hosted on legendary Sparks Street where passersby can snag a plate of ribs and donate to children's health. In conjunction with the barbeque, there will be silent and live auctions with hotel stays, dinners, spa packages, and more up for grabs!

Last year's Marriott Miracles for CHEO event raised $16,400 to help the hospital in its mission to provide families in crisis with access to any pediatric programs, research, equipment, education, and assistance that their child might need. The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario's ability to stay at the forefront of lifesaving pediatric healthcare depends upon fundraisers like Marriott Miracles. As a leading family hotel in Ottawa, when Marriott learned of the hotel's goals so many years ago, they were proud to sponsor and garner support for these events.

Local business people, Ottawa natives, and travellers are all invited by Ottawa Marriott Hotel to stop by this event for a quick coffee in the morning, or an enthralling change-up from their daily lunch routine. Any contributions honour an Ottawa, Ontario hotel's commitment to a selfless cause, and advance CHEO's ceaseless and vital mission to allow suffering children access to world-class healthcare. This crucial event will be easy to follow throughout the day and hard to pass up. Radio sponsor 105.3 Kiss FM will be broadcasting live from the event all day, while live updates of the event can be followed on Twitter and Instagram @ottawamarriott, or like the event on Facebook at So, come out and show your support this summer in person and online.
