As part of a fundraiser for the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital (BBCH), BNN hosted the “Super Fan Friday” fundraiser on October 31. Led by Cheri Lozoraitis, BNN file room administrator, employees were invited to wear their favorite sports team apparel in exchange for a donation to the Hospital. As a result of the fundraiser, BNN donated more than $1,200, exceeding the original goal of $1,000.
“Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital has helped so many families in their time of crisis, including my own,” said Lozoraitis. “I was excited to put together this fundraiser and thrilled that Baker Newman Noyes allowed me to host the event here in our Portland office. The generous support of those in the BNN family was inspiring and the gratitude expressed by BBCH was heartfelt. I hope to do it again next year!”
The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital is Maine’s only full-service children’s hospital, offering a range of services including well-child visits to specialized medical and surgical treatment for complex illnesses and injuries.
