Recognizing the impact of sharing a common goal, learning to inventory the resources available around you, and understanding how each team member affects the outcome of a project were common themes of an all-staff educational and training day attended by Baylake Bank employees recently. They were also lessons put directly into practice that resulted in raising more than $12,800 for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

During the past several months, Baylake Bank employees organized and successfully implemented 22 different fundraising events with the support of customers, community, and local businesses. The events were held throughout the bank’s multi-county service area in support of an employee selected service project that was part of the company’s 2012 Sales & Service event, Reaching New Heights. The efforts not only raised awareness for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, but a portion of the money raised has been designated to the hospital’s Hot Unit in honor and memory of Bo Johnson. Bo was a Door County boy whose battle with leukemia inspired the community, and whose message of kindness and hope touched people across the state and beyond.

According to Denise Hajos, Fundraising Manager for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, approximately 600 children are treated for cancer each year at the hospital, and they have an oncology group in Green Bay that works closely with the hospital’s main campus in Milwaukee. “We are doing a better job each year curing children with cancer… and helping those who are living with the after-effects of treatment to have a better future,” Hajos said. “Thank you (Baylake) for all your efforts and for making such a tremendous difference.”

With premier programs for congenital heart defects and heart disease in children, pediatric bone marrow transplantation, pain management in children from infants to adolescents, and other standard-setting specialties, the pediatric subspecialists, specialists, and pediatricians of Children's Hospital of Wisconsin deliver outstanding pediatric care to the children in our region.

“We have a lot to celebrate as a company. I am extremely proud of our team of employees and truly touched by their hard work and the generous contributions they make to each other, their communities, and to great causes like Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin,” said Robert Cera, Baylake Bank President and CEO.
