When it was opened in 1855, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was the inaugural medical center in the U.S. dedicated to providing care exclusively for children. Since then, many pivotal firsts in pediatric medicine were born at CHOP, and it has been the home of hundreds of medical discoveries and innovations that have advanced pediatric healthcare and saved the lives of countless children around the world.
Global Limousine has a tradition of involvement with raising funds for CHOP. Each year, Philadelphia radio station WOGL produces a fundraiser for the hospital, for which Global provides rides and contributes funds. This year, the company tried something a little different. “We pledged two dollars for every trip we did in the prior 30 days,” says Anthony Viscusi, president of Global Limousine. Through this pledge, the company was able to raise an additional $3,700 for the charity, as another part of their ongoing support for CHOP.
Through the support of individuals and companies like Global Limousine, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has been able to continuously provide the best care for children and find cures and treatments that save lives worldwide for nearly 160 years. For more information, visit www.chop.edu.
