First Weber’s annual retreat a success once again – two days of learning, networking and giving back in a big way.
Diversity training, professional speakers
It started with a Manager meeting on Monday with information on our record -breaking sales year, a marketing update, recruiting awards and drawings, and then diversity training with Sara Alvarado and team with their Step Up Equity Matters program. Despite the icy road conditions, we had a FULL house in the Dells at the Kalahari the next day when hundreds of agents arrived. We heard from Futurist Rebecca Ryan, Elaine Beaubien and Michael Johnson, CEO of the Dane County Boys & Girls Club.
$1400 purchased to support Mentoring Positives
Other highlights of the day included a “Salsa Sale” put on by Mentoring Positives of Madison. Their organization gets kids “Off the block” and out of trouble by growing their own vegetables to produce and sell “Off the Block salsa” which supports the Mentoring Positives vision. Agents bought $1400 worth of salsa and cleared the kids out of a few cases!
$5,000 donated to support the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County
Then, surprise! A $5000 check from the First Weber Foundation was presented to Michael Johnson for the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County. Michael gave a great speech about what a difference the club makes in the member’s lives and then CEO Jim Imhoff pulled out a check for him. Inspiration and very proud to support the cause.
$6,000 raised to support the First Weber Foundation
There was a raffle to benefit the First Weber Foundation and also a Silent Auction. Agents bought raffle tickets and bid on a wide variety of donated items to raise a total of $6,000 for the First Weber Foundation. You know that money will be put to good work supporting organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and many more.
An all around success and so much fun. See you next year!
