Kingsdown, international manufacturer of ultra-premium bedding, recently presented a check for $500,000 to Thomas R. Kinney, MD, Wilburt C. Davison Professor and Associate Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Duke Children's Hospital. The contributions were raised during the company's centennial celebration year, when Kingsdown hosted a Swing for Kids event at Pinehurst. The three-day event featured a celebrity golf tournament, awards dinner and a special Children's Miracle Network (CMN) opening ceremony. Additional funds were raised at Kingsdown's four manufacturing facilities around the country, where employees hosted a variety of events ranging from road rallies to golf tournaments. "Raising the money was a major effort by all of our employees, dealers and friends," says Eric Hinshaw, CEO of Kingsdown "It's simply a wonderful cause that we believe in. And we plan to continue to support Duke Children's Hospital, as well as other CMN hospitals around the country where employees at our manufacturing facilities will host fundraisers."
