Hotel in Towson Supports Local Cancer Organization and Chamber of Commerce

Towson University Marriott Conference Hotel Raises Money Year-Round

TOWSON, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- The community of Towson is only 15 minutes from downtown Baltimore, but the city retains its small-town charm, home to a close-knit community of residents and businesses. Working together comes naturally here, which is why the Towson University Marriott Conference Hotel works year-round to support both the locally based Cool Kids Campaign and the Towson Chamber of Commerce.

The Cool Kids Campaign is "devoted to improving the quality of life for pediatric oncology patients and their families by focusing on the academic, social and emotional needs brought on by a cancer diagnosis." The nonprofit organization offers programs for kids with cancer including a learning center with tutoring, group activities and preschool; family-friendly outings in the city and personalized care packages.

To benefit the organization, this hotel in Towson raises money year-round, which helps the nonprofit offer its programming at no cost to kids and families in need. This hotel is also close to the Greater Baltimore Medical Center, making it a convenient choice for those receiving treatment and requiring an extended yet comfortable stay. Here, families can stay in spacious, one-, two- or three-bedroom suite-style accommodations that include a full kitchen, separate living and dining areas, a washer/dryer, walk-in closet and complimentary high-speed Internet access.

The hotel in Towson near Baltimore also works closely with the local Chamber of Commerce, supporting community events such as the annual Towson Town Spring Festival. Now in its 47th year, the free festival will take place May 3rd and 4th and feature live bands, food, beer and wine, carnival rides, performances and a shopping festival with more than 450 vendors. For more information on the event, visit www.towsontownspringfestival.com/.
