AKF Presents Donation to Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU

RICHMOND, VA — AKF, an engineering, commissioning, technology, design and consulting firm, recently presented a $3,000 donation to the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University (CHoR at VCU). AKF helped raise funds for the hospital as a sponsor of CHoR’s 25th Annual Bowl-A-Thon. CHoR at VCU, the region’s only full-service children’s hospital, serves more than 60,000 children annually.
AKF Principal Brad Lownsbury, who leads the Richmond office, presented the check to Stephanie Allan, Vice President for Community Development for the Children’s Hospital Foundation, which works in support of CHoR at VCU.
“One of AKF’s fundamental values is making a positive impact in the places where we live and work, and we support the organizations leading the effort to promote wellness in those communities,” Lownsbury said. “We applaud CHoR for making the health of Virginia’s children their top priority, and on behalf of AKF Richmond, we offer this donation with tremendous gratitude for their dedication to our kids.”
Allan said the foundation was grateful for the support it received from AKF, the Richmond community and all involved in making the event a success. 
“AKF Group’s sponsorship and participation in the event helped us raise nearly $40,000 for the 60,000 children served at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU,” Allan said. “This was our biggest and best bowling fundraiser to date thanks to our event sponsors, participants, volunteers and donors.”
AKF Managing Partner Dino DeFeo, PE, praised CHoR for its commitment to the children in the Tri-Cities region and said that AKF is honored to support the hospital.
“During our 30-year history, AKF has always endeavored to strengthen the organizations that are invaluable to our communities, and we are proud to make this donation to CHoR,” DeFeo said.
