There are other ways to help raise resources for this important professorship:
Donate Your Birthday
In lieu of material gifts this year, consider asking friends and loved ones to make a donation instead to The Edward L. Bove, M.D., Endowed Professorship in Cardiac Surgery. It’s easy! Simply send a note out explaining why the professorship is important to you and include a link to the donation page.
Organize a Fundraiser
There are all sorts of fundraising ideas out there! Lemonade stands, bake sales, and partnering with a local restaurant for a percentage of their proceeds one day are all great ways to raise money. Here is a website that we like for creative fundraising ideas: http://www.fundraiser-ideas.net/good-fundraising-ideas/ Whatever you decide to do, make sure you let friends and family know you are doing it and why!
