“On March 2, 2019, more than 200 Beacon Associates and trivia lovers gathered to participate in the Third Annual Chris Haas Trivia Night. All proceeds support the Chris Haas Pediatric Nursing Education Fund at Beacon Health Foundation.
It was a night of fun, laughter, and most importantly, we raised money for a great cause and honored an incredible woman.
Chris Haas, my mother, was a beloved pediatric nurse at Memorial for over thirty-two years. She held multiple positions while at Memorial. Her passion and dedication to care for sick and medically fragile children was unlike any other. She empowered local nurses, physicians, therapists, and first-aid responders to help children through her teachings in the Pediatric Advanced Life Support class. She was a phenomenal educator and it was her mission to ensure participants left her class feeling confident when caring for sick and disabled children. She was, and continues to be, an inspirational role model to many of the nurses at Memorial.
After my mom’s passing in 2014, my family created the Chris Haas Pediatric Nursing Education Fund to continue her passion for education and teaching. Through generous community donations and trivia night attendees support, this fund enhances the skills of pediatric nurses by financially supporting continuing education opportunities that may otherwise not be possible.
We look forward to continuing our mission in raising funds, positively impacting our local children’s health and continuing my mom’s mission to educate our professionals. Thanks to all that continue to support our efforts!”
