The Nemours Fund for Children’s Health, the philanthropic arm of Nemours, honored Peter Lustgarten, co-owner of Concordville Nissan-Subaru, with its Inspiration Award in 2013. The award, presented at a gathering of The Nemours Society held in December, was established to recognize an individual who personifies philanthropy through both their own personal generosity and encouraging others to support Nemours and the children and families it serves.

Peter Lustgarten and Concordville employees have been enthusiastic supporters of Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children for many years. He provides the hospital with two vehicles that are used in its community outreach and trauma injury prevention programs. This year, when Peter had the opportunity to choose a local charity for the Subaru “Share the Love” event which ran from November 21, 2013 through January 2, 2014, he chose duPont Hospital. During specific holiday weekends, a portion of each car sold or leased is donated to the hospital to support its major expansion project, scheduled to be completed later in 2014.

The five-story hospital expansion will include all single rooms for young patients and comfortable overnight accommodations for parents. Other features include a larger Emergency Department, soaring atrium lobby, interactive discovery wall, healing garden, new cafeteria, and underground parking.  “I wanted to support the hospital because it is always there for the children of our employees, customers and everyone in this community,” Lustgarten, of Garnet Valley, PA, said.

“Peter Lustgarten can’t seem to do enough for duPont Hospital for Children,” said Lori Counts, Managing Director of the Nemours Fund for Children’s Health. “Since 2006, this remarkable man has been personally generous and used his many business connections to make things better for children in our community. Peter and his wife Alison are also members of The Nemours Society. He is a true advocate for Nemours and for kids.”
