You may not realize it, but Baton Rouge is home to one of the largest providers of pediatric services in Louisiana. Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital treats some 70,000 children each year.

And, the parents of those children know Our Lady of the Lake also has specialists that help families cope with the hospitalization of a child. Families of children with special medical needs can also get the care their child may require here in town, with the supportive network of family and friends.

We are fortunate  to have this resource so close to home. That's why WAFB is proud to partner with Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital in its "Driving the Future" campaign. For $50, you have a chance to be one of five lucky people to win a Lexus.
