John Deeth Blog: Hoover-Wallace Dinner Honors Leach, Ponseti, Sen. Culver
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Iowa's highest and mightiest gathered Saturday night in Coralville to
honor a groundbreaking physician and two political leaders who have
continued their public service despite their rejection by Iowa voters.
The annual Hoover-Wallace dinner raised over $57,000 for the
Borlaug-Ruan International Internship Program and honored former
congressman Jim Leach and former Senator John Culver for their public
service, and Dr. Ignacio Ponseti for his pioneering method of treating
children born with clubfoot, a congenital bone defect. The guest list
was a who's who of Iowa politics, including Governor Chet Culver, son
of the former senator.
