Hauversburk brings considerable non-profit, volunteer experience to her role at the Buddy Fund, including a leadership position in a domestic violence shelter, and support for a leading cancer-research organization. Her own efforts to support underserved communities through sports and athletics were shaped through the years by selfless coaches and teammates and their giving spirits.
She enjoys concerts, all genres of music, her dog Mo, family time, yoga, sushi and the beach, and sports, from golf and tennis, to paddleboarding and biking.
The Buddy Fund is a charity helping St. Louis area children without regard to race, ethnicity or religion. It was founded in 1962 by St. Louis Sportscaster Buddy Blattner to supply new sports equipment to other charities and organizations that used sports to help redirect and change the lives of at-risk underserved youth, including boys and girls clubs, police athletic leagues, homes for kids, community centers and after school programs.
