Marco Island, FL (PRWEB) October 27, 2007
Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa has partnered with Education for Children with Diabetes Foundation (CWD) in an effort to drive awareness and raise funds for childhood diabetes. To reach the goal of raising $10,000 in the next few months, the resort has unveiled a Florida family beach vacation and flagged the Mango-Mandarin Healing Hands Massage and select spa products as charitable components that enable guests to help by simply booking. Now through December 31, 2007, guest can give back by just kicking back and enjoying the following:
- CWD Family Escape - Marco Island Vacation Package, designed for two adults and two children and available for a two- or five-night stay, features adjoining guestrooms, which means kids get their own pad and mom and dad get some privacy. Prices start at $519 per night; daily breakfast buffet, four specialty drinks and a recreation credit ($25 for two-night stay and $50 on five nights) are included.* Donation: $50 and $100 contributions, for two- and five-night stays respectively, will be made to CWD.
- Mango-Mandarin Healing Hands Massage, Biotone Mango-Mandarin body butter and lotion enable guests to indulge without guilt as these all give back to CWD! A 50-minute customized massage at this refreshing Marco Island spa ($140), infused with the tempting scents of mango and mandarin which smoothes and conditions skin, ensures spa-goers will double as do-gooders as this specialty massage is tied to CWD through the end of the year. Donation: 15% of all proceeds from the massages and spa products will go straight to CWD.
The mission of Education for Children with Diabetes Foundation is to promote understanding of the care and treatment of diabetes, especially in children; to increase awareness of the need for unrestricted diabetes care for children at school and daycare; to support families living with diabetes; and to promote understanding of research into a cure.
Marco Island Marriott is proud to get involved and partner with this worthy cause. With the two- and five-night packages and the mango-mandarin massage and spa products that result in generous donations, this acclaimed Naples luxury hotel is making headway in the battle for children with diabetes.
