The coming Memorial Weekend will be special at Wind River Financial for two reasons.
First, it’s a staff tradition at Wind River that we recognize and remember the military service members who have served our nation. Many of us have relatives past and present who have served in the various branches of the armed forces, and we remember them by posting their pictures on a memorial photo board in the Wind River office.
Memorial Weekend 2014 will be special for us for another reason. Wind River Financial will be a major presenting sponsor of this year’s Brat Fest, May 23-26 at the Alliant Energy Center grounds. We will be sponsoring several music stages, including the WeRNext Stage, which features some fantastic up-and-coming local bands.
Since its inception (can you believe Brat Fest is turning 31?), the event has raised more than $1.3 million for local charities and served over 3,000,000 brats. Check out the “Brat Fest Stats” page on the event website to become a Brat Fest trivia expert!
As you walk the grounds of Willow Island this Memorial Weekend, chances are good you’ll see and hear the Wind River name quite a bit. All of us are excited to partner with this world-class event in the spirit of good food, great music, volunteerism and charity. It’s the kind of celebration that our military forefathers would have loved!
