Marriott’s Root Beer Float Sales Help Seattle Children’s Hospital!

The week of August 5, participating Marriott International hotels throughout the United States and Canada will host root beer float fundraising activities with the proceeds going directly to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

There are 15 local Marriott properties raising money for Seattle Children’s Hospital, so stop by and cool off with a delicious root beer float!

(Please check with your local hotel directly if a specific day or time is not listed below.)

Root Beer Float Day is a nod to Marriott’s beginnings when company founder, Bill Marriott, Sr., and his wife Alice opened two root beer stands in Washington, D.C., in the 1920s.

“We wouldn’t be the organization we are today without the support of Marriott as our longest-standing corporate partner,” said John Lauck, president and CEO, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Marriott associates and guests are among the most passionate fundraisers we have.”

Thank you Marriott!!


Marriott associates and guests have raised $135 million in the last 35 years. The company fundraises through a variety of events and activities throughout the year.
