St. Joseph Foundation


April 25, 1999|By Sloane Brown

About 875 adventurers climbed aboard "the Orient Express" at the B&O Railroad Museum for this year's gala fund-raiser for the St. Jo- seph Medical Center Foundation. While the choo-choo hullabaloo never left the museum, its passengers still got in some sightseeing. Can-can dancers repre-sented Monte Carlo, polka dancers evoked Dusseldorf, and a gon-dola on wheels stood in for Venice.

Among those enjoying the ride: Trevor "Chip" and Terry Lewis, event co-chairs; Ken DeFontes Jr., foundation board chair; Jim Cullen, president and CEO of St. Joseph Medical Center and the foundation; Frank Palmer, VP of Whiting-Turner Contracting Inc.; Dr. Harry Brandt, director of the Center for Eating Disorders; Sherri Cole, financial analyst with ROH Inc.; Dr. Jim Linz, CEO of Orthopedic Associates; Dale Lawson, president of Nature Lawn and Landscape Inc.; and Damon James, building automation technician at St. Joseph's.

Fares collected from the night's passengers helped the foundation meet its goal of $210,000 to purchase new equipment for the Heart Institute at St. Joseph Medical Center.
