All of Ted’s community engagement includes time & money. Ted has been involved with the local hospital fundraising for over ten years. An important initiative was raising money for the Cancer Pavilion. It is a wing specifically for cancer patients & their treatment. This was a three-year commitment. This undertaking was particularly important to Ted. Both of his parents died from cancer.
There have been a series of initiatives to raise money for the hospital. The annual golf tournament raised over $100,000. Ted helps find sponsors & also contributes his time & money to the tournament. He has sponsored the same team for the last ten years. Ted says that he is not a great golfer, but he can put together a great team.
