| Welcome New Board Member
Steve Brown, Executive Director, Cushman & Wakefield/NorthMarq, a Board Director and member of the Clubhouse Committee for Gilda's Club Twin Cities.
"I've been touched by cancer over and over during my life and that's why I am involved with Gilda's Club. For the past two and one-half years I've been part of the clubhouse team looking for the ideal building to transform into our Clubhouse. It was a long journey looking at over 100 properties. You know the result, we found that needle in the haystack. It's a place we all can be excited about and I'm proud to help put in place the welcoming red door of a Gilda's Club in the Twin Cities."
