MINIs for our MINIsBALTIMORE, MD  - Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (MWPH) and Priority One Automotive Group kicked off “MINIs for our MINIs” a promotion that involves filling a themed MINI Cooper with onesies and pajamas for MWPH patients ages 0 – 18 years.   The promotion will continue through April and the MINI Cooper (pictured) will be parked at MWPH and travel to other hospital-related events. 

“We strive to maintain a home-like environment for our kids – many of whom are here for weeks or months,” said Sheldon Stein, CEO at MWPH.  “We are grateful to Priority One for this creative promotion that will help our kids feel comfortable when they’re here.” 

Priority One Automotive Group is a Fairy Godmother sponsor of MWPH’s Storybook Gala, schedule for May 2 at the Hyatt Regency. This sold-out event in its second year is a major fundraiser for the hospital and features emotional stories about children and families who have received healthcare services at MWPH.

“We are excited to kick off this MINI promotion in support of our most important minis – our kids,” said Alison Cohen, General Manager at Priority One Automotive.  “All month we ask people to stop by the hospital or any of our stores to drop off onesies and pajamas for newborns to 18 year old teens.” 

 MINIs for our MINIs begins on April 1 and continues through April 30. The public is invited to drop off onesies and pajamas at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (1708 Rogers Ave., Baltimore, MD) and at these Priority One Automotive Group locations: MINI of Baltimore (9804 Reisterstown Rd., Owings Mills, MD), BMW, Porsche, Maserati of Towson (700 Kenilworth Dr., Towson, MD) and BMW of Rockville (1300  Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD).
