TERRE HAUTE —
Foundation event a huge success
Union Hospital Foundation, along with nearly 200 medical providers, sponsors and guests, celebrated the success of our second annual “To Your Health” event that was held on May 16, 2012, at O’Shaughnessy Hall to honor Union Hospital’s Guardian Angels and celebrate cardiovascular health.
Guests enjoyed mingling among friends and perusing over silent auction items made available to the Foundation by our local business partners. The program was convened by noted guests such as Michael Lawson, president and CEO of Riddell National Bank, which served as our Title Sponsor, Union Hospital Foundation Board Chairman Don “Scotty” Scott and Union Hospital CEO Scott Teffeteller. Guests made a toast while enjoying Ehler’s Estate Cabernet Sauvignon titled “One-Twenty over Eighty,” named to represent the “ideal” blood pressure and a “playful” reminder of the estate’s unique ownership which is dedicated to cardiovascular research.
Throughout the night speakers made mention of the Foundation’s Guardian Angels and the intricate role they play in sustaining Union Hospital’s mission of providing compassionate and quality care to the patients of the Wabash Valley.
Guardian Angels are medical providers, employees and volunteers of Union Hospital who have been nominated by grateful patients for the excellent care they provide to the patient and their families during their experience at the hospital. Since the program’s inception in 2010, the Foundation has named nearly 400 Guardian Angels. The Foundation is truly blessed to support a hospital that has such wonderful employees and volunteers who are so loved by the residents of the Wabash Valley.
On behalf of the Foundation, I would like to extend my most sincere thanks to our philanthropic partners for assisting us in creating this unique event; we could not have had such a delightful evening without the support of our sponsors. Thank you to our Title Sponsor Riddell National Bank; Dinner Wine Sponsor Hux Family Charitable Trust; Dessert Sponsor Grand Traverse Pie Company; Dessert Wine Sponsor Baesler’s Market; Gold Sponsor 7th and 70 World of Wines; Silver Sponsors: Gartland Foundry, IWT and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology; Bronze Sponsors: Grease Monkey, Miller White LLC., and UAP Clinic; and Table Sponsors: Cancer Care Group, Fuson Automotive, The Estopinal Group, Hall, Render, Killian, Heath and Lyman P.C., ISU College of Nursing, Ivy Tech Community College, Joink LLC., Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, and Sackrider and Co.
Once again, Union Hospital Foundation thanks our sponsors and community partners for supporting “To Your Health” and for showing care to Union Hospital’s Guardian Angels. We look forward to working with the Wabash Valley again next year.

Cool days ahead at St. Benedict’s
Thanks to a successful campaign, The Big Chill, our beautiful church is now air conditioned. The miracle would not have happened without the generosity of our parishioners and friends of St. Benedict Parish.
We also thank Sycamore Engineering for their great work in the conception, engineering, and installation of the air-conditioning system.
Summer weddings, funerals and weekend Masses will now be comfortable in our beautiful and cool church.

FLASHPOINT: Humane Society does not merit IRS targeting either
Rep. Blaine Leutkemeyer is right that the IRS should not target any charitable organization solely on the basis of its ideology. Yet that’s exactly what he’s asking the IRS to do in his factually unfounded attacks on The Humane Society of the United States, the nation’s largest animal welfare organization and one that has the highest marks from the top charity watchdog organizations.
