The University of Chicago Medical Center has once again partnered with the American Heart Association in their lifesaving mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. To that end, we are participating in the AHA’s signature fund-raising event, the Heart Walk. In addition to raising vital funds for heart disease and stroke research and education, the Heart Walk engages companies to promote healthy lifestyles for children and adults. UCMC shows their commitment to the health of their employees and community with a fundraising goal of $100,000.
The Anesthesia & Critical Care "Sleep Walkers" as our team is named, answered the call! A float with two awesome raffles, a 50/50 Case Raffle and a deluxe Chicago Bears Basket Raffle was spotted daily in various parts of the hospital campus. Yesterday, at noon, Dr. Jeffrey Apfelbaum picked the winner of both raffles.
The 50/50 Raffle goes to... Ticket Number 476334
The delux Chicago Bears Basket goes to... Ticket Number 022096
A HUGE THANK YOU to both of our co-Captains, Theresa Cumming and Elaine Hrinyo. Theresa helped organize morning conference bake sales. Elaine was instrumental in the construction of our float and organization of both raffles. Not to mention her persuasive sales techniques that pushed us over our fundraising goal!
Thank you to everyone who supported this cause, and we look forward to continuing this mission in the years to come.
