In support of health care for its community in Lancaster County and southeastern Pennsylvania, Manheim Pennsylvania made a $20,000 donation to benefit the Johns Hopkins Heart and Vascular Institute and the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center in Baltimore, Md. This is the second consecutive year Manheim has supported the important work of Johns Hopkins.
“Philanthropic support from Manheim allows heart and cancer researchers to advance novel discoveries and translate them into therapies and treatments for our patients and families,” said Shannon Wollman, Director of Development for Johns Hopkins Medicine. “Private funding enables us to make great strides in research and accelerate breakthroughs.”
In honor of heart transplant recipient, Susan Adcock, whose husband is an auctioneer at Manheim Pennsylvania, and Randy Derr, a leukemia survivor and Manheim Pennsylvania assistant general manager, Manheim Pennsylvania elected to give a very meaningful gift again this year. In February 2014, Manheim Pennsylvania raised $31,750 for the Johns Hopkins Heart and Vascular Institute and the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center.
“Once again, Manheim Pennsylvania is fortunate enough for an opportunity to support Johns Hopkins Hospital and these two programs that save lives,” said Julie Picard, vice president and general manager of Manheim Pennsylvania. “The management, staff and customers of Manheim Pennsylvania continue to strive to back worthy causes like the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center and Heart and Vascular Institute. We all take pride in supporting a hospital that is such a blessing to Lancaster County and southeastern Pennsylvania region.”
