The money was gifted during a check presentation on October 1, 2015 and funds were raised through ABRA’s fourth annual charity golf outing on August 20th at Gaylord Springs Golf Links. Over 120 golfers and many sponsors and volunteers helped make the tournament a success.
The hospital will use the gift to support lifesaving research and vital programs for patients and parents. This 271 bed facility offers a special environment for children with health issues ranging from broken bones to heart disease and cancer.
Associate Director of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, Chris Lee said, “We are honored by the continuous support ABRA has shown our hospital. It is generous donations from organizations like ABRA that allow us to identify cures and better treatments for the children in our community, and this donation will help us provide the best possible care to our patients and families.”
Regional Vice President for ABRA Auto Body and Glass, Peterson Santos said he’s pleased to once again support this world-class facility. “Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt provides incredible hope to children and families facing many injuries, illnesses, and disease. It is with great pleasure that we continue to support this wonderful organization in its mission to deliver the highest quality medical care to children in need.”
