Rochester, NY (August 16, 2019) – The Howard Hanna management team gathered at Golisano Children’s Hospital this week for a tour of the hospital and a ‘kick-off’ of the Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fundraising campaign in Rochester.
“This is the 32nd year of our annual fundraising campaign for children’s hospitals in our market areas. We are very excited to add Golisano Children’s Hospital to our list of children’s hospital partners,” said Chairman Howard W. “Hoddy” Hanna, III. “Giving back to the community is a big part of our company culture.”
Patrick Brophy, M.D., Chair of Pediatrics and the Physician-in-Chief of Golisano Children’s Hospital, spoke to the group and expressed his gratitude for the new partnership. “Every day, our team of pediatric specialists strives to provide the best, most compassionate care to our patients and their families,” he said. “But it’s also the community that helps to build it into the beacon of hope it is for families of premature babies or sick children.”
Howard Hanna Real Estate Services supports many educational, health and social causes and events every year, however, the biggest and most impactful commitment is the annual Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fundraising campaign. Established in 1988, the mission of the Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund is to assure that children never be denied the best medical care available, whether helping families without insurance afford care for their children or to fund cutting-edge care that insurance may not cover.
The annual campaign features “Choo Choo Chow Chow” events planned, organized and executed by the volunteer efforts of the agents and employees in Howard Hanna offices. These fun, themed events are supported by local business donations and sponsorships, and by the members of the community who attend these events. The 2018 campaign produced $1,000,499 – the fourth consecutive year that more than a million dollars was raised!
“Our agents, staff and managers work tirelessly to hold great events while continuing to sell real estate, negotiate deals, keep up with market activity, coordinate appointments, hold open houses and market their listings. They care about the well-being of their communities and demonstrate that year after year,” added Hanna.
The Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
