Jill Welke has been working for a cause since I first met her about 19 years ago. She produced the huge Dallas area "Make A Wish" fundraiser for years until her family moved to Flower Mound.  They met someone with Cystic Fibrosis and decided they wanted to help... Here's what they accomplished in 10 years:


SUMMARY:
·         2004 - Created the North Texas Wine Opener benefiting Cystic Fibrosis
·         10 year event
·         1st year event = $72,500 NET
·         10th year event = $416,500 NET
·         Total raised over 10 years = 2,010,500 NET
·         Expenses were kept at 4% each year

 TOTAL amount raised = $2,427,000 NET $
To find out more about how that came to be click CF Bid for a Cure.
And the celebration of their big 10 year event where you will see not only Jill, and husband, Eric, and children, Jay and Abby, but also her parents, John and Carol: 10 Year Celebration
Here is an interview with Jill:

What does beauty mean to you?
Faith, Integrity, Perseverance and Happiness
When do you feel most “comfortable in your skin?”
When I’m surrounded by family and TRUE friends
What do you like most about being a woman?
Being pampered by my husband, feeling loved by Jay and Abby
