September 21st, 2016

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the National MS Society – Indiana State Chapter on August 27th!  Despite the morning rain, attendance was high and the energy was even higher at Music Fest for MS presented by Zink Distributing Company.  From conga lines to dancing to fun music to enjoying Market District tacos, a fun time was had by all.  Through everyone’s support and generosity, over $6,000 was raised to support the fight against MS.

Thank you to all of the community partners and musical performers who supported the concert and made this concert a success.

Why I Wear Orange: Ted Hoffman

For Ted Hoffman, wearing orange became personal when he started working at Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery.  Everyone thinks something like MS will always happen to someone else’s family not theirs. Here at CH, we have an employee impacted by MS, so it makes it a reality when it happens to “one of your family members”.

Ted supports Crown Hill’s initiatives with The National MS Society, Indiana State Chapter because he believes making a difference in someone’s life is a responsibility.  The quest for answers and participation is part of the journey and goal in curing MS.  Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery has been involved with community events, such as the annual Beyond the Badge Run/Walk. “This endeavor to support a cure for MS adds a philanthropic involvement for myself and  the staff. Being from a large family, I realized early in life it takes all to get a job done.”

Ted Hoffman is the Director of Operations at Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery.
