Georgetown Nurse Wins Hyundai Hands on Hope Contest

Olivia Rebro moved across the country, from eastern Washington to the District, to help the most vulnerable as a registered nurse. And on Feb. 1 at the Washington Auto Show, she was rewarded for commitment to service by winning the Hyundai Hands on Hope Contest and a brand-new 2020 Hyundai Venue SUV.

Rebro was one of the six contestants selected for the event, comprised of three staff members each from Georgetown Lombardi and Children’s National Medical Center, all of whom spent 50 straight hours at the Convention Center in physical contact with the Venue that one of them would ultimately win. Rebro won the tiebreaking event at the end of the contest, pulling out the correct lucky key that started the Venue and won her the car.

Georgetown Lombardi was awarded a $60,000 grant for pediatric cancer research, courtesy of Hyundai Hope on Wheels and the Washington Area Hyundai Dealers. Children’s National received $40,000, for a total of $100,000 in research grants donated in conjunction with the event. Click here to view a recap video from the 2020 Hyundai Hands on Hope contest.
