Baker Motor Company Donates $20,000 to MUSC Children’s Hospital – Charleston, SC

March 24th, 2015 by

Baker Motor Company Charleston Fashion Week hosted a Raise the Runway Luncheon & Fashion Show that benefited MUSC Children’s Hospital on Tuesday, March 17. The hospital is currently raising money to construct a new Children’s Hospital building.

As an avid supporter and philanthropist for the Children’s Hospital, Tommy Baker and his wife, Victoria, made a donation on behalf of the Baker Motor Company to inspire the rest of the crowd.

A video of Mr. Baker played where he announced he and his wife’s donation of $20,000 while asking the audience to match that figure to raise $40,000 during the luncheon.11034455_10152925826693197_2019289576886057851_o

In the video Mr. Baker said, “We need to build a new children’s hospital because it’s the most prolific thing we can do in our lifetime. This is for our kids and our grandkids. Remember, its MUSC Children’s Hospital of South Carolina. This hospital belongs to us.

At the end of the luncheon, the goal was surpassed and the luncheon raised nearly $200,000. We are proud to support this incredible organization.
