Event at Hotel in Jacksonville, FL Raises Money for St. Vincent's Healthcare

Red Rose Ball at Jacksonville Marriott Raises $380,000 for Heart Smart Program

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- February 14th is all about showing love, from thoughtful cards to sparkling jewels. This past Valentine's Day, the Jacksonville Marriott connected with the local community to show their love in a different way -- by helping raise money for St. Vincent's Healthcare.

This full-service Jacksonville hotel was honored to host the 33rd Annual St. Vincent's Foundation Red Rose Ball, a yearly event that raises money for various St. Vincent's Healthcare projects. This year's event raised more than $380,000. Funds will be used for St. Vincent's Healthcare's Heart Smart, a community program that promotes a heart-healthy lifestyle by providing participants with the tools they need for a healthy body and mind to reduce risk factors and prevent heart disease.

Offering a full range of services, this Jacksonville, FL hotel was able to beautifully execute the Casablanca-themed event, which hosted a sold-out crowd of 500 guests. Throughout the evening, visitors bid on hundreds of auction items, danced to live music by KTG and enjoyed an elegant three-course dinner.

The St. Vincent's Foundation Red Rose Ball is just an example of the type of event the hotel is equipped to host. Its 14,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space can accommodate weddings, reunions, charity galas and any other occasion that brings people together. In addition to flexible, stunning space, this hotel in Jacksonville offers assistance with event planning from start to finish. A team of experts can assist with coordinating the day, and outstanding catering can be customized to fit a theme, special diet or other personal request.

Not all events are celebrations; some are about getting work done. The hotel offers 16 meeting rooms and amenities that cater to the needs of business travelers. Each of the meeting spaces is equipped with high-speed Internet access and the latest audiovisual equipment. The new Red Coat Direct app, accessible from any web-enable device, allows planners to make requests before and during an event, from changing the temperature to requesting more coffee.
