Nice Day for Ducks

By Dr. David C. Pate, News and Community
August 1, 2012

The man you see pictured here is Pete DiDio, St. Luke's Health System vice president and controller. He does not, usually, come to work so colorfully attired.

But last week Pete and I, along with a couple of other hardy volunteers, left the ties behind, donned trunks, and headed for the dunk tank to raise money for needy families that will be supported as part of our holiday "From St. Luke's With Love" effort.

Staff members from St. Luke's HR, Finance, Information Technology, Marketing, and Public Relations teams took their best shots, enjoyed a potluck, and sampled desserts whipped up for a fund-raising bake-off.

In all, more than $1,000 was raised. Click here for more pictures.

And when you see Pete, tell him ducks become him!
