Our First Sponsorship Dinner

Last Saturday night we hosted our first sponsorship and recognition dinner. All business and community leaders in Horicon were invited, as well as our past sponsors. It was a wonderful night, with music by the 4th Street Elevator. Guest were able to mingle, sip wine, and enjoy a selection of cheese and gourmet crackers in the main area. Thank to our group of volunteers who quietly and quickly refilled glasses and trays.

Group members mingled with the crowd, got to know those that attended, and enjoyed the spread. And we were pleased to see lots of smiles from those that came.

Dinner was catered by Marsibilios from Mayville, with gorgeous fall table decorations by Tammy Baltzley. During the dinner, the group listened to a few presentation on what our group does, what is has accomplished this year, and our future plans. We hope to encourage more businesses to join with us in improving life in Horicon.

We were able to thank our past sponsors: Beaver Dam Community Hospital, Beaver Dam Dental, Krizan Insurance, American Legion, D’Signs Unlimited, John Deere Greater Area Foundation, the Horicon Bank, Innova Disc Golf, and Marshview Ministries.
We were also able to thank companies for donations to our community projects, these include a 5,000 grant from BDCH Foundation and two 500 grants from Walmart and Alliant Energy.

Last but not least, we awarded the Fall 2010 Phoenix Award to Bob Carpenter. Bob has tireless served the community for years. It was a pleasure to finally recognize him for all his service. Dinner was a lovely affair. Thanks so much to Kathy for all her hard work and effort. Thank you also the Marsibilios – what a treasure it is to have you nearby. We will probably do this again.
