Liberty Power assists in raising more than $70,000 for the 17th Annual Sporting Clays Charity Event
Ft. Lauderdale – April 26, 2013
Liberty Power, the nation’s largest independent retail electric supplier, today announced their sponsorship in the 2013 Children’s Miracle Network 17th Annual Sporting Clays Charity Event which took place on April 6 in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania.
The annual event, which raises funds for pediatric services, life-saving equipment, research initiatives, and educational resources, is organized by the Penn State College of Medicine, a Liberty Power customer through energy consultant, World Energy.
Liberty Power was among a variety of sponsors in support of this charitable cause, among them the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and World Energy.
“The event was a spectacular success; we had a great turnout, even the weather was perfect. We had more than 90 contributors supporting the event and raised in excess of $70,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network, exceeding last year’s total,” said Jeffrey J. Carter, Associate Director of Facilities Planning and Construction, Penn State College of Medicine. “We are very grateful for Liberty Power’s participation as a gold sponsor and for their enduring support of the children.”
Often compared to golf, this event allows participants to travel a pre-determined course and try their shot at clay targets all the way through. To engage the crowd this year, the parents of one of the children shared their story of the miracle child’s stay as a patient at the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
“It’s always a humbling experience to hear stories of those who have experienced such trying times. We are very thankful to have been offered the opportunity to participate and help in the making of miracles,” said David Hernandez, co-founder and CEO of Liberty Power. “It’s part of our social responsibility to give back to the community.”
The Children’s Miracle Network has raised well over $700,000 throughout the 17-year history of the event. Proceeds benefit the Children’s Miracle Network at the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
