FDL Area Foundation Honors FDL Community

Faced with the impossible task of picking a Legacy Award Winner in its 40th Year, the Fond du Lac Area Foundation arrived at a unique choice. Foundation Executive Director Sandi Roehrig says they have had a lot of contributors over the years that have allowed them to establish over 314 funds that have given out over $15.4 million in charitable grants. So there was one logical solution. She says without everybody giving and supporting the community would not be what it is today, so they decided to give the Legacy Award to the entire Fond du Lac Community. The award was made during the 11th annual “Celebration of Giving” dinner held at South Hills Country Club on September 9th. Over 200 people attended. The Foundation also recognized 9 years of meritorious service Patricia Miller and Steve Millin gave serving on the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
