Why did you join THE GUILD?
I grew up hearing my Dad talk about the St. John Guild Dinners and the great enteretainers being Phyllis diller, Bob Hope, Bill Cosby… When I graduated from Hillsdale College and started my career at KPMG in the RenCen, Larry Scott asked me to buy a ticket and join jis table for the Dinner in 1979. The GuildDinner became a tradition, we had a group of old friends getting together annually to support our local hospital. Joining THE GUILD was a given, again, to support our local hospital.

What have you gained by being a part of THE GUILD?
I have enjoyed many, many years of fun and camaraderie! The Annual Dinner has always been a special event, and I have made many new friends over the years. It has been very satisfying serving on the Board for the past 15 or so years. Our Guild has raised millions of dollars to support our hospital and I am proud to be a part of it. Furthermore, I have gained invaluable experience serving with such a talented group.
