Carstar Puget Sound Business Group Raises More Than $77,000 To Benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital
SEATTLE (August 17, 2017)— The CARSTAR Puget Sound Business Group hosted another hugely successful charity event, upping its total raised to more than $77,000 for the Seattle Children’s Hospital over the past two years, including some $37,000 during its recent 12th Annual CARSTAR Charity Golf Tournament at The Golf Club at Newcastle in Newcastle, WA.
On hand at the event was a very special family, Lee’or and Wendy Rutenberg, parents of young Sadie Rutenberg, who underwent life-saving surgery for a congenital heart defect discovered before she was even born. Sadie was the first child in the United States to receive a pediatric heart valve as part of the Halo U.S IDE Trial.
“When you find out that your child has a disease like Sadie has, you begin to wonder if anybody can help. Seattle Children’s doesn’t just provide medical care, but also the hope that a family clings to as they navigate their child’s illness,” said Wendy Rutenberg. “Like so many of the other families we met during our stay at Children’s, we are able to sleep at night knowing that regardless of our ability to pay we will also be able to turn to this amazing organization for help. Thank you.”
The charity event was a collaboration involving all of the 25 Puget Sound CARSTAR locations, who worked together on this important charitable initiative. A group of 144 golfers got to enjoy the tournament and the many related activities, including a silent auction and an appearance by the CARSTAR Miss Rock hydroplane. A good time was had by all.
