Valvoline Instant Oil Change Raises Funds For Children’s Hospital

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Nine local Valvoline service centers are working with customers to raise money through November for children who receive medical care at T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.  

Valvoline customers will have the opportunity to purchase miracle balloon icons throughout the month of November to support the region’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.  All proceeds from the sales will go directly to Children’s Hospital to support services for sick and injured children in the region.  

“We are excited to partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and help raise funds for medical care, research and education for children treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Rob Stravitz, vice president of marketing for Valvoline Instant Oil Change. “Valvoline Instant Oil Change employees at more than 200 participating service centers are passionate about making a difference in their communities. They are thrilled to help with this year’s campaign to raise awareness and money for local kids.”
