Jeff Lindemann Receives J.R. Vette Friend of the Youth Award from the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh

The J.R. Vette Friend of Youth Award is named in memory of lifetime board member J.R. Vette and goes to a board member who has put forth outstanding efforts to further the mission of the Club. Jeff joined the Board of Directors in 2010 because he wanted to help make change for our community. Over the years, Jeff has helped the Club in many ways. From assisting and sponsoring with WineFeast as the Beer Sponsor, participating in Adopt-a-Family program, holiday meals and helping the Club make connections with new donors, he has always been willing to help. One of the biggest ways Jeff has helped the Club was to help us run Oshkosh Docktoberfest for the last 3 years. This 2 days Octoberfest event allowed us to grow our Wisconsin Cornhole Tournament into a larger event and helped us reach a wider audience. And it was always a good time! Jeff has also assisted with helping our Alumni group at the Oshkosh car show, he has helped to get other friends and family connected to the board and has helped to lead this Club while on the board. Tracy Ogden, CEO, expressed, “We want to thank Jeff for always finding creative ways to promote the Club and help us support our mission.”
