Jamestown, New York (Tuesday, December 13, 2011)—As partners in Chautauqua Lake Advisors of UBS Financial Services, Rick Wight, Hans Auer, Jake Kane and Pete Sullivan firmly believe in giving back to their community. Central to the livelihood of those living in their community of Jamestown, New York is the continued success of WCA Hospital. For this reason, these four financial professionals are individually supporting Sharing the Gift of Health: The Capital Campaign for Our Emergency Department with a combined campaign pledge totaling $10,000.

“WCA is such an important asset to our community,” says Hans Auer, Vice President Investments for Chautauqua Lake Advisors and Co-Chair of the Campaign Professionals Committee. “When you think of all the worthy causes in our area, it’s hard to think of one that benefits every single member of our community in such a meaningful way. If you haven’t already, we want to encourage all professionals and business leaders to join us in supporting this critical campaign effort.”

“I’ve lived in Jamestown my whole life and have been a ‘customer’ of WCA’s Emergency Department many times,” says Pete Sullivan, Senior Wealth Strategy Associate for Chautauqua Lake Advisors and Co-Chair for WCA Hospital’s previous capital campaign. “They have always taken great care of me . . . now it is our turn to step up and care for WCA.”

“The philanthropic commitment demonstrated by these four professionals is greatly appreciated,” says Karl Sisson, WCA Director of Development. “We are so thankful to so many generous individuals and businesses, like the Chautauqua Lake Advisors partners, who are firmly standing beside us in support of this vital construction effort. Together, I am confident we will ultimately reach our lofty capital campaign goal and look forward to opening our new Emergency Department next year.”
