2017 Scholarship and Make-A-Wish Recipients
We are so pleased to share with you the stories and pictures of the recipients from funds raised at Katie’s Birthday Benefit last spring. Making a difference for these deserving young people, in memory of our daughter Katie, would not have been possible without your generous support.
Verona High School senior, Jenna Acker, was awarded the first annual “Katie Udelhofen-Clark scholarship” at the VAHS awards ceremony last May. She began her freshman year at the University of Wisconsin – Platteville this fall. Jenna is a remarkable young woman – we know Katie would approve of our choice. Click here to read a touching thank you letter from Jenna.
Most recently we learned about Ethan, the 11 year-old from Milton, WI who was granted his wish to go to Disney World from Make-a-Wish Wisconsin. His moving story further reinforces our belief that giving to this worthwhile organization is what Katie would have wanted. Click here to learn more about Ethan and his wish.
Words fail us as we attempt to thank you for your kind and loving presence in our lives these past several months. Please know that we are so very grateful. We “believe” with all our hearts that Katie’s kind and loving spirit lives on.
