The Women’s Fund of Door County is making “sheroes” out of everyday people making a difference in the community during the pandemic. The organization began honoring women last week when it paid tribute to United Way of Door County Executive Director Amy Kohnle for her partnership with others to address rental assistance, food needs, and childcare. This week the Women’s Fund honored Nicolet Bank’s Michelle Sternard for helping local businesses stay open during uncertain times. Women’s Fund Board Member Jennifer Moeller hopes through these stories, young women and girls find inspiration to serve their community.
Recognizing local “sheroes” is part of this year’s virtual Celebrate Women! Luncheon, which past in-person events have served as the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
