-We find it very important for us to be involved in the community and support our local charities, in order to help these amazing groups make a difference. Many of us on the Maplewood Suites team have been affected by cancer one way or another, which is a big part of why we are so compassionate about helping raise awareness and being part of making a difference.
2. We can all agree that the rain was our least favorite thing about this year's event but what was the best thing about the 2016 Badass BBQ?
-The slip n’ slide. They set that up right by our tent, and it was a riot seeing the kids AND adults go flying down, without any cares. That’s what it’s all about, making the most of a not so ideal situation.
3. During this year's event, the Maplewood Suites booth played games and offered a raffle, then kindly donated the proceeds to the event. Who was your winner and what did they win?
-Our lucky winner was Connie Myers-Kelly, she won a night for two, to the Syracuse Funny Bone, with $100 Food & Beverage Gift Card PLUS overnight accommodations at Maplewood Suites. All proceeds from our Spin N’ Win, along with the raffle tickets, were donated back to Hope Chest for Charity.
4. Sponsorship offers a chance to get involved with local charities that make a difference in our community and it also provides an end of the year tax deduction - but for many companies, what is most important is the promotion aspect. Why spend dollars on advertising when you can give to a charity and get promoted just the same. That being said, what would you tell the public to promote Maplewood Suites? Is there something unique about this hotel or newsworthy that you would like to share?
-Maplewood Suites isn’t your average hotel. We’re grateful to have such a generous owner that allows us to take part in so many events throughout the community, as well as a great team to stand with.
5. Last but not least, why do you think Maplewood Suites has been dubbed with the hashtag #coolkidshanghere ?
-Due to our commitment to the community and supporting other local businesses and organizations, we seem to pop up everywhere! You never know when you’ll see a Maplewood face or ad!
