Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
The Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2020 Black Tie Tailgate proceeds will again benefit the Department of Nursing at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and support its patient, family, community, and staff programs and initiatives. For the nearly 4,000 nurses, respiratory therapists and technicians at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, their work is a science, an art and a calling. They are committed to providing highly-reliable, safe patient care and excellent outcomes for patients and families, while advancing education and research missions.
The Department of Nursing was also chosen as the 2018 & 2019 Black Tie Tailgate beneficiary, with a record $1.2 million raised through those events.
