Yesterday, at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, Howard Hanna William E. Wood formally kicked off its ‘ChooChoo ChowChow’ fundraising campaign to benefit the Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund. While this is a new campaign for our local Howard Hanna William E. Wood agents and staff, Howard Hanna has been planning ‘ChooChoo ChowChow’ events since 1988 in all of their regions to raise funds that help provide free medical care to all children, regardless of insurance or the family’s ability to pay or for the cutting edge care that insurance may not cover. The events are always FUN and FESTIVE! You will want to be invited to one! As a company-wide campaign, everyone is involved, including our sales associates, managers, staff, and the Hanna family as well. Most ‘Chow Chow’ events are held from September through December.
Our local ‘Chow Chow’ events benefit children’s free care at CHKD. As our real estate agents and staff toured the hospital as part of the campaign kick off, it was evident just how important this hospital is to our local children and the many critical health care needs it serves. CHKD is committed to offering the best possible medical care to the children of Hampton Roads. More than 250,000 local patients are seen each year, and support offered through our Children’s Free Care Fund will assist with the costs associated with the many services and equipment that are necessary to allow the hospital to continue to offer such quality care.
Last year’s company-wide ChooChoo ChowChow Campaign raised $936,664 to support the many children’s hospitals in all the regions where Howard Hanna sales offices are located. This year, our goal is to raise $1,000,000 to support the Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund. Our agents are now busy planning to fill our calendar with many ‘Chow Chow’ parties/events. Be sure you attend one and be sure to get your raffle ticket for a chance to win cash prizes this December!
