ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
The entire Crown Automotive Group is committed to making a positive impact on the community, and Crown Hyundai in St. Petersburg is no exception. The dealership, along with other Bay Area Hyundai Dealers, recently raised $75,000 to donate to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital through Hyundai Hope on Wheels.
The donation came in the form of the Hyundai Young Investigators Clinical Award, granted to the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Foundation thanks to the work of Dr. Erin Cockrell and the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Psychosocial Oncology Patient Navigator Pilot Program.
The Bay Area Hyundai Dealers also donated eight iPad tablets for the children in the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Pediatric Cancer Ward to use.
“St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is an incredible organization, and a cause we truly believe in,” said G.R. Tarr, General Manager of Crown Hyundai in St. Petersburg. “It’s always an honor to be involved with Hyundai Hope on Wheels, and we’re thankful for the opportunity to do our part.”
The award, which will assist the hospital in helping and supporting young patients with cancer and their families, was presented at the Hope on Wheels Signature Handprint Ceremony at the hospital on Thursday, August 28, 2014.
Crown Hyundai, as well as the rest of the Crown Automotive Group, participates in charitable endeavors like this throughout the year that benefit residents of the St. Petersburg community and the surrounding areas. The Hyundai Hope on Wheels organization has contributed $699,230 to the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Foundation since 2006.
