Nationwide Partners With Hendrick Motorsports, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Chevrolet to Donate $400,000 to Nationwide Children

Nationwide, in partnership with Hendrick Motorsports, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and Chevrolet, donated $400,000 to Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

The donation equaled the sale price for a 1970 Chevelle SS and Nationwide No. 88 stock car auctioned off in tandem at the Jan. 21 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. The 1970 Chevelle was co-designed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Chevrolet; and the Nationwide No. 88 Chevrolet SS was driven by Dale Earnhardt Jr. during the 2014 and 2015 NASCAR racing seasons. The cars were donated to the Barrett-Jackson auction by Hendrick Motorsports and Chevrolet.

“Working with Dale Jr., Chevy and Hendrick Motorsports to bring this donation to fruition underscores our special partnership,” said Terrance Williams, chief marketing officer at Nationwide. “Nationwide Children’s Hospital remains one of the cornerstone beneficiaries of our philanthropic efforts and together, Nationwide and the Nationwide Foundation are proud to have delivered more than $80 million in aggregate gifts and commitments to the hospital over the last decade.”

“On behalf of Nationwide Children’s Hospital patients, families and staff, I want to express our gratitude for the tremendous generosity exemplified by Nationwide, The Nationwide Foundation, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Hendrick Motorsports and Chevrolet,” said Steve Allen, MD, chief executive officer of Nationwide Children’s Hospital. “The philanthropic vision of our hospital partners is a testament to their dedication to ensuring Nationwide Children’s Hospital will continue to help children everywhere through unmatched clinical care and the discovery of new cures and treatments.”
