St. John’s Health Foundation adds four new board members

JACKSON, Wyo. — The St. John’s Health Foundation announced the addition of four community members to their board of directors yesterday.

The members joining are Tom Fay, May Herr, Richard King IV, and Paul Vogelheim. They bring a wealth of knowledge about the local community, fundraising, and health care to the Foundation Board. The new slate of members was approved by the full board on December 9, 2019.

“We are thrilled to add four talented, thoughtful, and active community members to our board. They are eager to help the Foundation achieve our fundraising goals for important clinical priorities in the coming years” said Foundation Board Chair Bill Best.

Foundation President John Goettler added, “We are fortunate that these individuals have decided to invest their time and energy in all of the work the Foundation does to support St. John’s Health.”

Tom Fay is the proud owner of Pinky G’s Pizzeria, Jackson’s “Best Pizza” since it opened in 2011. He is also a partner at Moe’s Original BBQ and entrepreneur of other small business ventures in the Jackson area. He and his wife Kristen can often be seen at local events with their identical twin girls, Collins and Campbell. Outside of the restaurant business, Fay prefers to be found on the ski slopes, playing hockey or on the golf course.

Fay joined the St. John’s Pulse Advisory Committee in 2019 and enjoys working with the Foundation team on a special where $2 from every large pizza sold during the month of October is donated to the Women’s Health Care Fund.
