The Homewood Suites by Hilton located in the Nashville Vanderbilt area have been partners with the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt for over 8 years. Any time a Vanderbilt Hospital reservation is made, 5% of the total cost is given back to the hospital. Because of this partnership, the hotel was able to give almost $50,000 back to the hospital within the first 5 years.
The Homewood Suites got in touch with Seacrest Studios at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in February of 2017 in order to participate in one of the daily programs on air. This program is now broadcasted through the Hospital’s television channel and is streamed into the kid’s rooms, through various departments, and to several other hospitals around the country. The hotel team has also had the opportunity to visit the hospital to read Lewis the Duck books to patients, and Lewis the Duck himself even came for an appearance!
In February 2017, the Nashville hotels participated in their first Children’s Cup. As a result, the event raised over $200,000 in one day for the Children’s Hospital. Teams competed in singing challenges, dance video challenges, and more! The hotels provided all of the volunteers needed to work the event. Team members enjoyed lending a helping hand and cheering on the teams. In February 2018, the Homewood Suites participated in their second Children’s Cup, donating $500 to the cause, and enjoying a night out at Topgolf Nashville.
At the end of 2017, the Nashville team participated in the River of Hope Radiothon. They raised $185,000 for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, and likely encouraged people to donate even more.
Homewood Suites Nashville Vanderbilt also became a Gold Sponsor of the Gifts from Friends program in May 2018. Several members of the hotel team became individual Friends of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital members for a small yearly donation of $50, but a large opportunity to make a difference!
Congratulations on locating the premier hotel club for parents and alumni of Vanderbilt University. Go 'Dores!
