Our community is rich with the stories of visionary businessmen and women whose contributions have made North Central Wisconsin a great place to live and work. The Champions of Business event was conceived as a means to recognize and honor the professional accomplishments of these individuals, as well as to identify positive role models for our community's young people. An elegant evening to celebrate these past leaders of our community.
