2019 Lead The Charge: Believers & Achievers Gala

Saturday, May 18th, 2019 we held our second annual Lead the Charge Gala at Blue Mound Golf and Country Club in Wauwatosa, WI. What an amazing evening blessed with wonderful people – friends, family, achievers, and believers. 

Our night was kicked off with the introduction by Robin Baker, Director of Marketing & Fund Development, a blessing by Sr. Marcia Lunz, OSF,  and talks from our President, Ted Behncke. Daniela Goldstone joined the podium with a wonderful speech  on behalf of St. Coletta of Wisconsin and her appreciation for Kwik Trip’s retail helper program and her employment with Kwik Trip.  

The night was filled with silent suction items, a client artwork auction, a fantastic dinner and a live auction with our celebrity auctioneer – Steve “The Homer” True.

Lifetime Achievement Award Winner: Kwik Trip -Don Zietlow Family, represented by Carl Rick.

Achiever of the Year: Nicole Grehn (former St. Coletta of Wisconsin employee)

Believer of the Year: Duane McAllister (Board Member)

Congratulations to our well-deserving award recipients! We already look forward to what next year brings and can’t thank all of you for joining us for such a memorable evening.
