NEW YORK—Highlighting Marriott’s Spirit to Serve, Courtyard New York Manhattan/Midtown East has pledged to donate $100 to Susan G. Komen Greater New York City each time a special pink-themed suite is booked at the hotel any day in October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Along with the hotel’s charitable donation on their behalf, guests will receive deluxe overnight accommodations for prices starting at $359 a night with a choice of two Susan G. Komen promotional items. Promotional items are chosen upon guests’ arrival and will be delivered to their homes following checkout.
Started in 1982, Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, Komen has invested more than $2.6 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 30 countries. Komen’s efforts have helped reduce death rates from breast cancer by 34 percent since 1990; and have helped improve five-year relative survival rates for early stage cancers from 74 to 99 percent. The hotel has decided to partner with the local Affiliate, Komen Greater NYC, as a way to continue Marriott’s tradition of community service and to help support those outside the hotel walls.
