Allison Zobel, co-chair of the Arlington/Roe philanthropy committee, presented a donation check to the Riley Children’s Foundation on Friday, August 5. The Arlington/Roe philanthropy committee asked associates to donate $2 to wear jeans and the color red for Heart Health Awareness Day earlier this year. Arlington/Roe matched the amount of money raised and a total of $244 was donated to the Riley Children’s Foundation.
Friends of the beloved Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley formed The Riley Memorial Association, now named Riley Children’s Foundation, in 1921. The group further honored Mr. Riley’s legacy by building Riley Hospital for Children and opening Camp Riley for Youth with Physical Disabilities. Riley Hospital opened its doors in Indianapolis, IN and received its first patient in 1924.
Riley is Indiana’s only comprehensive pediatric research hospital, with expert physicians in every pediatric specialty handling more than 300,000 patient visits each year.
