This campaign ran from April 1 through July 31 of this year. It was chaired by Fred Sluneka, Chief Operating Officer, Avera Health, and Tom Dempster, Director, IFAM Capital and Chair of the LSS Governing Board of Directors. The goal was to raise $1,250,000. Nine team captains and more than 90 volunteers solicited the Sioux Falls business community for their financial support for this important project.
As of this day, $1,256,603 has been raised or committed to the LSS Campus on East Bank by the Sioux Falls business community.
One of those who made an early commitment to support the Campus on East Bank was Midco. On October 11,2016 Dan Nelson, Midco Director of Government Affairs, presented a check in the amount of $10,000 to Betty Oldenkamp, LSS, President/CEO, and Bill Peterson, Vice President LSS Development & Foundation. The presentation was made on the site of the LSS Campus on East Bank.
We want to say a special thank you to Dan, Midco and all the Sioux Falls businesses who are making the new campus a reality for LSS.
Bill Peterson, Vice President
