Dentist donation

Bryan Hoertdoerfer, owner of Hoertdoerfer Dentistry, has pledged to raise and donate $160,000 over the next five years in support of the expansion of the $29 million Elliot Regional Cancer Center. Hoertdoerfer was the first corporate sponsor in 2018 to achieve the Elliot Elite Sponsorship Level by raising more than $35,000 through personal and corporate fundraising. He has raised $125,000 by initiating and hosting the Big Z Challenge for the past seven years to support multiple causes across Elliot Health System.
