Governor and Good Causes: This Week at Heart

heart technologies governor visit good causesIt’s been quite an exciting week here at Heart Technologies! Spring seems to be a busy time for many, and we are no exception. With a governor visit, employees coming together, end-of-the-year wrap ups, and Great HEART Give, there isn’t a dull moment in our offices!

As many may know, Heart Technologies enjoys helping the community as often as we can. This week, we learned that Jersey Mike’s was hosting a fundraiser, donating 100% of its profits to Easter Seals on Wednesday. Since Easter Seals is an organization close to many of our employees’ hearts, many wanted to support this event. We ended up having so much interest, we did a bulk order! It was a wonderful lunch supporting a wonderful cause.

Thursday, Governor Bruce Rauner was in the office. Though his visit was brief, it was an exciting day in the office! CEO Lance Lelm was able to greet him upon arrival. Governor Rauner was led on a tour of the building and engaged in a short discussion about government budget and its effect on small to medium sized businesses like Heart Technologies. WMBD was there to capture all the action for their newscast. More pictures from this visit can be found at our Facebook page.
