Food World and Senior Bowl Continue Support for USA Children's & Women's Hospital

MOBILE – USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital has received the fourth year of a five-year $250,000 pledge from Food World and the Senior Bowl to fund the recent renovation of the hospital’s lobby. The support is from proceeds generated by the 18th annual Food World Senior Bowl Charity Run last November.
“Our hospital offers technology unmatched in this region, and our staff is highly trained and dedicated to providing the absolute best care for children and women,” said Veronica Gonner, USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital assistant administrator. “Food World and Senior Bowl are important partners in our efforts.”
“Since 1995, USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital has been the primary beneficiary of the Senior Bowl’s charitable giving,” said Dr. Joseph F. Busta Jr., vice president for development and alumni relations at USA. “On behalf of the patients and staff of USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital, we want to thank Food World and the Senior Bowl for their generous support.”
Dr. Joseph Busta Jr., vice president for development and alumni relations at USA and Veronica Gonner, assistant administrator at USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital receive the latest Food World Senior Bowl Charity Run gift from David Powell, Food World district manager.
“The Food World Senior Bowl charitable partnership presents an opportunity for our company to fulfill the responsibility of returning something to our communities in a way greater than ever before,” said Food World district manager David Powell.
“The success we continue to enjoy with the Charity Run, combined with the Senior Bowl’s goals of charitable giving that we share with Food World, enables us to positively affect thousands of individuals who are served and impacted by USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital,” said Senior Bowl chief executive officer and president Steve Hale.
USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital, part of the USA Health System, has the area’s only Level III neonatal intensive care unit - offering the most advanced care for premature and critically ill newborns - along with the area’s only pediatric intensive care unit for critically ill and injured children, the USS Hope cancer and sickle cell treatment center for children, and specialized high-risk OB/GYN care.
