Formerly the interim CEO of Sparks Health System, Tim Schmidt now serves as the CEO of Bay Area Regional Medical Center in Webster, Texas. Outside of his work in the health care industry, Tim Schmidt has dedicated his time and resources to several nonprofit organizations, including the March of Dimes.

In a recent press release, the March of Dimes announced that Macy’s raised more than $3 million during its 2016 Shop For A Cause event. Macy’s has held the annual shopping event for the last 11 years to raise funds for the March of Dimes and other nonprofit groups.

This year, the March of Dimes was the exclusive beneficiary of Shop For A Cause, which gave Macy’s customers the opportunity to purchase $5 savings passes that could be used to get a discount on online and in-store purchases made between August 26 and 28, 2016. All proceeds from the event supported the March of Dimes in its efforts to improve the health of babies worldwide.
