Eat’n Park Restaurants’ 39th annual Caring for Kids campaign raised $7,864 for Indiana Regional Medical Center — and a total of $402,160 this year, the company announced.

The Caring for Kids campaign raises funds for children’s hospitals in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. All funds stay in the communities from which they are donated to help qualifying children receive medical care.

For the eighth consecutive year, Neighborhood Ford Store partnered with Eat’n Park Restaurants and donated a new Ford vehicle to be raffled. Almost $100,000 was raised through raffle ticket sales and will benefit the Caring for Kids campaign.

Neighborhood Ford Store is a group of 81 Ford dealers in four states.

Also among the 16 beneficiary hospitals was Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
