Bob Evans in Mason to host fundraiser for WVU Children’s Hospital, Children’s Miracle Network

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – If you’re headed out to dinner in the Mason area on Feb. 15, stop into the Bob Evans on Mallard Lane for the Community Fun Night benefiting West Virginia University Children’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network.

During the event, from 4 to 8 p.m., Bob Evans will donate 15 percent of sales to Children’s Miracle Network when patrons present a Community Fun Night flier.

WVU Children’s Hospital is the only Children’s Miracle Network hospital in West Virginia. Each year, WVU Children’s Hospital provides care to more than 7,000 newborns and children, who come from every county in West Virginia and also from Pennsylvania, Maryland and Ohio. On average, 1,600 babies are born annually at WVU Children’s Hospital. Almost three-quarters of the deliveries are high-risk. WVU Children’s Hospital physicians provide care for children at the hospital in Morgantown and at clinics throughout the state.

“In order to treat all the children who come through our doors we need people in the community to come out and support fundraising events like this one,” Cheryl Jones, R.N., director of WVU Children’s Hospital, said. “In 2009, we treated more than 30 kids from Mason County, and we’ll be here for all those who need us in the future.”
