Car Insurance Co. Raises Funds for Hospital

Doctor listening to small child's heartbeatThe Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational was a hole-in-one this year, with the annual golf tournament raising a record-setting $642,500.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s pediatric cancer and treatment division will benefit from $550,000 of the raised funds. The remainder will go to other charitable organizations.

The auto insurance company chief marketing officer Jim Lyski says he hopes the tournament can continue to raise necessary funds for the hospital.

“It is our great pleasure to be in position to provide this support for children and families in central Ohio,” said Lyski. “We look forward to more opportunities in the future to build on this year’s success and support the critical mission of the pediatric cancer program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.”

Potentially thousands of children will benefit from the research performed at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The American Cancer Society estimates 260,000 children under the age of 19 were diagnosed with cancer in 2006.
