The grand prize is being donated by Champion Chevrolet for the 12th year in a row. Over the last 11 years, the dealership has given away seven new cars and over $100,000 in cash in support of Niswonger Children’s Hospital.
“Our community is very fortunate to have a children’s hospital that can treat our kids locally so families don’t have to travel out of the area to cities like Charlottesville, Knoxville and Nashville, and be separated from one another for treatment. Now, they’re able to stay here,” said Andy Dietrich, Champion Chevrolet co-owner. “Helping raise money for such a great cause is one of the ways we give back.”
“We are incredibly grateful for the generosity and longtime support of Champion Chevrolet,” said Lisa Carter, chief executive officer of Niswonger Children’s Hospital. “I cannot thank them enough for all they’ve done over the years to support Niswonger Children’s Hospital, the region’s only children’s hospital. Their contributions have made such a positive impact in the lives of the children and families we serve.”
