Celebrate Founders' Day

Fond du Lac Founders’ Day Celebration

April 9 - 5:30PM - 8:30PM
Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts, 51 Sheboygan Street, Fond du Lac, WI 54935

For 170 years, the UW has changed lives around the world. Be a part of this exciting Founders’ Day celebration. When Badgers connect, great things happen!

Enjoy a buffet dinner and a special presentation:

Memories Matter: UW–Madison’s Initiative to End Alzheimer’s

Cynthia Carlsson MS’05 — associate professor of geriatrics at UW–Madison and interim director of the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute

Buffet options will include grilled Italian chicken breasts, vegetarian stuffed shells, parsley red potatoes, and tossed salad. A cash bar will be available.

We will gather in the Fountain City Room. Dinner will be served at 6:15 p.m. The program will begin at 7 p.m. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at registration, with proceeds benefiting our chapter scholarship fund.

We are also pleased to honor Kristin Kohlmann ’13, recipient of a Forward under 40 Award. Forward under 40 recognizes alumni under the age of 40 who are outstanding examples of living the Wisconsin Idea — the idea that this public university exists to serve the public good.

In addition, we will honor Aaron Sadoff ’97 with the Badger of the Year Award. Badger of the Year honorees are selected based on leadership in their professions, service in their communities, and/or contributions to volunteer organizations.
