ALL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL WING DEDICATED TO AMOCO DEALERS AND JOBBERS
 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A six-year $300,000 pledge to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg was announced today by Amoco Oil Company and the Amoco Dealers and Jobbers for Kids, Inc., a group of dealers and jobbers in west central Florida, organized to raise funds for the hospital.
 In appreciation for this donation, the hospital today is dedicating the Two Southwest Patient Care Area to Amoco Oil and the Amoco Dealers and Jobbers for Kids organization. Two Southwest is a 24-bed unit that specializes in the care of oncology, hematology, nephrology and gastroenterology...children with cancer, blood disorders, kidney or digestive problems.
 "We are pleased to dedicate an important wing of the hospital to Amoco and its dealers and jobbers in west central and Gulf Coast Florida," said Joel Momberg, vice president of community relations of the hospital. "Their efforts in raising and donating this large sum to the hospital signifies a great concern and caring for the children in this area."
 Beginning this year, Amoco dealers and jobbers from Lakeland to the Tampa Bay area, north to Homosassa Springs, and south to Naples, will donate $300,000 over the next six years. Amoco Dealers and Jobbers for Kids will raise the funds through special events, customer contributions and personal donations.
 "The Amoco dealers and jobbers have been involved in the Children's Miracle Network fund raising effort for several years on an individual basis," said Richard Van Peer, president of the organization. "We want to show the communities that Amoco dealers and jobbers have made a commitment to help All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg achieve quality health care for all children. We are proud that the hospital has dedicated a wing to us and that the Amoco Torch and Oval will be a permanent part of the hospital."
 For the past several years Amoco Oil and its dealer and jobber organizations have participated in the Children's Miracle Network campaigns to raise money for children's hospitals. Last year Amoco dealers and jobbers throughout Amoco's 30-state marketing area donated over $1 million to the Children's Miracle Network.
