RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A generous donation will go a long way towards helping sick children in central Virginia.
The Estes family and their company, Estes Express Lines, pledged $2 million towards the construction of the new “Wonder Tower” at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond.
The company will donate $150,000 and the family will donate the rest.
“We did a lot of research about the Children’s Hospital of Richmond, and are just really excited about the things they’re working on and the things they’re doing to bring a world-class pediatric hospital to the City of Richmond,” CEO Rob Estes said.
The Children’s Hospital Foundation is matching the donation dollar-for-dollar.
The “Wonder Tower” will eventually house VCU’s pediatric inpatient, emergency and trauma services.
It’s scheduled to be completed in 2023.
