I am interested in formating the Fundraising Directory

I am interested in formating the Fundraising Directory Location page, found here. Particularly, I would like the following to happen (if possible),

1. Remove the date and the hear and other meta data before each fundraiser name.
2. In the right hand column in the blue box, why doesn't the the amount raised vs the goal appears. and how do I customize the sidebar for this entire page without changing the side bar on each fundraisers page.
3. Is it possible to limit the number of characters on this page, as I don't want the entire bio to be present on this page. In fact, I think that it would be best if I could have the "..." or something that says "learn more about Catherine" which will redirect to her personal fundraising page.
