(PRWEB) April 19, 2017
Baywood Hotels, a hotel management company headquartered in Greenbelt, Maryland, launched its national “Miracle in a Bottle” fundraiser across over 80 hotels in the Mid-Atlantic, Florida, New York and Texas regions to help the nationally known Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The bottled water fundraiser was launched as part of Baywood Hotels’ community initiative Baywood Education and Reach Initiative (BEAR).
Formally launched in December 2015, Miracle in a Bottle is Baywood Hotels’ first company-wide fundraising effort, as each of its hotels also performs charity work in the local community. BEAR-branded bottled water is currently and exclusively sold in the company’s hotels’ on-site markets and at the front desk to guests, clients and staff for a mere $2 per bottle. All profits, averaging $1 per bottle sold, will be donated to hotels’ local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals locations. In March 2017, over 17,000 bottles of water were sold, raising an additional $17,685 for donations for a combined total of over $60,000 since program launch.
"Baywood Hotels is proud to see this initiative take off nationwide at our hotels," said Chief Operating Officer Rick Fenstemaker. "We have had staff that has had personal experiences with CMN and we truly see the value as an organization."
