Glendale Heights – The GlenOaks Hospital Foundation has announced the appointment of local residents Susan Lyons, Paul Bergl and Matt Cunningham to its board of directors. The foundation supports the mission of Adventist GlenOaks Hospital through philanthropic activities.
“We’re looking forward to having a great year with all the fresh energy, commitment and dedication these three new members bring to our board,” said Michelle Kallevik, executive director of the foundation.
Darien resident Susan Lyons is well known to the foundation. She and her family have raised nearly $110,000 for the foundation to support the Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day School. The funds were raised in memory of Lyons’ son Christopher Lyons, who was graduated from the school in May 2007, shortly before his death in July of that year. The annual Christopher Lyons Memorial walk is held in the fall at Meyer Woods in Darien.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know the hospital better,” Lyons said regarding her new position as a board member. “People there work together very well; it’s like a big family.”
Lyons’ family includes her husband, Michael, another son and a daughter.
Bloomingdale resident Paul Bergl will serve as treasurer. He is a certified public accountant and a senior manager at Dam, Snell and Taveirne, Ltd. in Libertyville.
“The GlenOaks Hospital Foundation has a lot of momentum,” Bergl said. “We’re doing a lot of good things and it’s exciting to be a part of that.”
Bergl is a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Illinois CPA Society. He has served on various committees of the Illinois CPA Society. Bergl and his wife have two sons.
Elmhurst resident Matt Cunningham is a regional sales manager for Superior Ambulance. He has participated in the GlenOaks Hospital Foundation golf outings for about four years. He will serve on the foundation’s golf committee, helping to plan the events. Cunningham is the father of three sons.
