LifeBridge Health Is United!

United Way of Central Maryland provides more than $10 million in community funding to various organizations and agencies serving in and around Baltimore, and 15 Baltimore County non-profits received $64,065 in grants this year. The United Way works with several partners, including Northwest Hospital, VSP, the American Heart Association (Mid-Atlantic) and the American Red Cross of Central Maryland.

Sinai Hospital kicked off its United Way campaign yesterday with members of the executive leadership team playing "Family Feud."

The men's team - vice presidents Lionel Weeks and Joel Suldan, CEO Warren Green, and Chief Medical Officer Daniel Silverman, M.D. - won the first game, while the women's team - vice presidents Taylor Foss, Lorrie Liang, Ev Amaral and Barbara Epke - won the "lightning round."

Sinai Volunteer Services manager Beth Markowitz and Human Resources benefits consultant Lori Turner were the official scorers, letting a team know when they would receive the dreaded "X" for an incorrect answer. Shannon Wollman, manager of development at Sinai, was the host of the game.

Events at Sinai that will raise money for United Way include a basket raffle until July 20 (the baskets are pictured on the left), a Pet Mascot Contest from Tuesday July 27 to Friday, July 30, a fundraiser at Mount Washington Tavern on Tuesday, August 3, a cookie sale on Thursday, August 12, and a PartyLight Sale on Wednesday, August 18.

LifeBridge Health employees who donate to United Way will be eligible for a variety of prizes. Yesterday's contest winner for the free day of Paid Time Off was Dotsy Selway in Surgical Oncology.

Northwest Hospital
will kick off its United Way campaign on Thursday, July 22 at 2 p.m. in the cafeteria with an ice-cream social. (The night shift kick-off will be at 10 p.m.) Levindale and Courtland Gardens begin their campaigns today.
