The family of the late Robert O. Steinjan Sr. recently visited The Heart Center of Niagara at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center to present a donation of $8,100 in support of the hospital's new inpatient cardiac and stroke care unit. The gift represents proceeds from the second annual Robert O. Steinjan Sr. Memorial Car Show, held this summer at Hoover's Dairy Store in Sanborn.
"We are honored to be the beneficiary of the Steinjans' generosity. As a sign of our appreciation, the new cardiac and stroke care unit's family education room will be dedicated in memory of the late Mr. Steinjan," said Memorial Medical Center Vice President for Community Relations Judith Nolan Powell. "The Steinjans' annual classic car show is an incredible global labor of love that involves family members from as far away as Great Britain."
Steinjan, who died in 2015 at the age of 76, had chronic heart disease and was treated at Memorial after suffering both a stroke and a heart attack. His family was so favorably impressed by the care he received that they set a fundraising goal of $25,000 for the new unit, scheduled to open in November, and will hold the car show annually until their goal is attained.
Last year's event raised $6,700, bringing the family's two-year gift total to $14,800.
