CFO wears heart on sleeve

September 01, 2008

Terre Haute, IN (September, 2008) – A Chief Financial Officer is often described as “heartless.” On Friday, September 12th Terre Haute Regional Hospital CFO Brian Bauer will show just how big his heart really is.

Bauer will be wearing a full heart costume as a part of a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. He will be wearing it all day – even to meetings.

During the week of Aug. 25, employees at Terre Haute Regional Hospital voted if they wanted the Chief Executive Officer Chris Hill, Chief Nursing Officer Laura Kurzendoerfer, Chief Operating Officer Lea Ann Klarner or Bauer to wear the costume. They voted by putting money in each candidates tin.

Through this fundraiser over $200 was raised for the American Heart Association.

Terre Haute Regional Hospital will have a team at the American Heart Walk on Sept. 13 at Deming Park. There are over 30 people on the team and so far have raised nearly $3,000.
