The Car Wash Operators of New Jersey (CWONJ) were able to present Children’s Specialized Hospital’s Community Engagement Manager, Billy Cardone, with a check for $7,000 after their August 6 outing. The Children’s Specialized Hospital 18th Annual Golf Outing at famed Suburban Golf Club in Union attracted 60 golfers to the exclusive A. W. Tillinghost course, designed in 1922, on a sunny, warm summer day. “It was a perfect day and a terrific opportunity for our membership to give back to the hospital,” said CWONJ President Doug Rieck. “We have now raised $69,000 for The Children’s Specialized Hospital! This is a gratifying event and one that we should all take great pride in. In our own small way, we are making an impact.”

The hospital has been a long the recipient of much of the event’s profits. Children’s is the country’s largest pediatric rehabilitation hospital and leading provider of inpatient and outpatient care for children from birth to 21 years of age facing special health challenges — from chronic illnesses and complex physical disabilities like brain and spinal cord injuries, to developmental and behavioral issues like autism. Children’s has 12 New Jersey locations and treats more than 16,000 children annually from all over the country.
