Drive for a Cause: Lincoln of Troy teams up with Crittenton Foundation

October 30, 2012

Lincoln of Troy and the Crittenton Foundation have partnered to raise money for Crittenton’s latest patient care initiative – a new tower with 87 single patient rooms, space for medical and nursing education, centers for cardiac, orthopedic and family medicine.

On Tuesday, November 13, the Lincoln of Troy dealership will provide cars for community members, Hospital employees and volunteers to test drive. For each person who test drives a vehicle, Lincoln will donate $20 to the Crittenton Foundation for the tower project.

“We have supported the Crittenton Foundation for years and so have many of our clients,” said Paul Sabatini, President of Lincoln of Troy. “As someone who lives and works locally, I am proud to help save lives and promote health care in our community. As a business owner, I also value the Hospital’s role as an economic engine. It is a great cause for a great community.”

“Drive for a Cause will make a big impact for our community, because proceeds will fund equipment and technology for our patients,” said Melinda Conway Callahan, President of the Crittenton Foundation. The Crittenton Foundation is raising $20 million through philanthropy to implement smart room technology, pharmacy bar-coding, a healing garden and other patient-care initiatives in the new tower.

The event will be held at Crittenton Hospital Medical Center, 1101 W. University Drive, from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm on Tuesday, November 13. For more information, call the Crittenton Foundation at (248) 652-5345.
