Wallace informed the Board that during the first two quarters of the year, fundraising for the Wisconsin Hospitals State PAC & Conduit is on pace to reach its 2017 goal of raising $312,500. The campaign hit the $140,000 mark this week with contributions from 126 individuals. This puts the fundraising campaign at 45 percent of the $312,500 goal.
