TownePlace Suites by Marriott at Baltimore/BWI Airport Partners with Johns Hopkins on the New Charles R. Bloomberg Children’s Center

TownePlace Suites BaltimoreWhen Johns Hopkins opens The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center on April 29, 2012, each patient will have a handmade fleece blanket as a warm welcome to the $1.2 Billion state-of-the-art children’s hospital.

TownePlace Suites Baltimore/BWI Airport is the proud sponsor of this blanket program.  “It was all hands on deck” says General Manager, Michelle Emley, “when Patrice Brylske, Director of Child Life and Child Development reached out to our hotel inviting us to partner with them on making the patients move from the old facility to the new facility as smooth and comfortable as possible”.

“We know this can be a very delicate time for both the patients and parents and our team is over the moon to help out in any way we can” says Emley.  Everyone from staff to guests to clients and corporate management are coming together on February 23, 2012 for a blanket-making-kick-off-party to trim & cut 908 pieces of fabric and tie over 67,500 knots to make 454 blankets by opening day.
