30TH ANNUAL HUNTSVILLE CLASSIC WILL PROVIDE NEW
PEDIATRIC, NEONATAL TRANSPORT AMBULANCE TO MEET GROWING NEED
Huntsville, Ala. – One of Huntsville’s largest community events will raise money for Huntsville and Madison Hospitals’ youngest patients this year. Huntsville Hospital Foundation announced today that proceeds from their 30th annual Huntsville Classic this May will provide a second Kids Care transport ambulance, plus the innovative equipment onboard.
Huntsville Hospital’s current Kids Care ambulance covers the entire North Alabama region, transporting up to 700 critically ill and injured infants and pediatric patients every year. The vehicle accommodates patients ages birth to 18, and is staffed 24/7 by a highly trained medical team with 200-plus years combined experience.
“It is our honor to safely and effectively transport these young patients every day, and the second Kids Care vehicle will ensure we can continue meeting the growing need during peak times,” said Danielle Armstrong, Huntsville Hospital Pediatric ICU unit director and Kids Care coordinator. “Concert goers and golfers in this year’s Huntsville Classic will have a direct impact on making this possible, and we are extremely grateful for their support!”
General tickets for the May 10 Huntsville Classic concert featuring Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit may be purchased at the VBC Box Office or online at Ticketmaster.com. Concert-only tickets are priced at just $25, $35 and $40.
