Residence Inn Raleigh Midtown Teams Up With Others in Sponsorship

RALEIGH, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/05/14 -- The Residence Inn Raleigh Midtown offers visitors a sense of community at its extended-stay hotel in Raleigh, NC, so it's no surprise that investing in the local community is a priority, too. This year, the hotel teamed up with others in the Summit Hospitality group to sponsor Shaw University's Department of Athletics.

With the generous sponsorship, this hotel near downtown Raleigh, NC and others within the hospitality group will be able to benefit the university department in a number of ways including branding, hosting visiting teams, advertising on the university website, game day announcements, hole sponsorship for the football team's golf outing and hosting teams for the university's Softball Challenge.

The Softball Challenge, taking place February 21st, 22nd and 23rd, is the perfect opportunity for guests of this hotel near Red Hat Amphitheater to experience the excitement of college athletics. The 3-day tournament brings some of the top NCAA Division II teams from the region to compete, and with nine fields and games every 2 hours, there are plenty of chances to catch the action.

The Residence Inn Raleigh Midtown offers a comfortable place to stay for athletes and vacationers alike. Suite accommodations feature plenty of space and amenities such as a full kitchen, sleeper sofa and complimentary Wi-Fi.
