Posted On: November 4, 2016

Milwaukee, Wisconsin. – On November 3, 2016 BizTimes Media presented its third annual awards program to honor community-nominated corporate citizens and nonprofits for their ongoing commitment to making southeastern Wisconsin a better place to live, work and play.

The awards presentation was preceded by a panel discussion where a panel of business and community leaders discussed current efforts and future opportunities to work together to solve complex and deeply-rooted challenges of the Greater Milwaukee area.

St. Coletta of Wisconsin was recognized as the large “Nonprofit of the Year” for their creativity and innovation in building a sustainable organization, excellence in teamwork and an outstanding dedication to the organization’s mission in the community. The nomination came from an individual who attended a fundraising event back in May that was held at The Legend of Merrill Hills, affectionately named, “The Genesis Cup” after St. Coletta’s new day program, Genesis, which focuses on providing educational and skill building opportunities for transition-aged youth with developmental disabilities.

“We have taken on some bold initiatives over the past year that focus on sustaining the longevity of our organization, introducing new programs to meet the growing needs of our community and ensuring a quality workforce for the people we are so blessed to serve,” said Ted Behncke, President of St. Coletta. “This award solidifies we are heading in the right direction and we are honored to have been named as Nonprofit of the Year”.
