It's hard to believe that spring is here! Snow is on the ground and Tapestry is just a few short weeks away. If you are like many Fort Wayne residents, you will be heading off to spring break in the next week or two. Before you go, please remember to send in your Tapestry registration or register online. The breakout sessions are filling fast, and the first phase of registration ends Friday, April 5. You may still register from April 6 to 12 with an additional $10 donation to the Tapestry Scholarship account.


Gather your friends and plan a day for you at Tapestry, April 26. I can't wait to see you there!

Registration Ends Soon!

Please remember to send in your Tapestry registration or register online by Friday, April 5. You may still register from April 6 to 12 with an additional $10 donation to the Tapestry Scholarship Account. 


  • If you are going with one or two friends and are open to the idea of meeting new people and sitting anywhere in the crowd, register online for open seating at $65 per person.
  • If you and nine friends want to sit together as close to the stage as possible, register for a reserved table for 10 for a total of $700 or $70 per person. The cost is a little more than open seating but you will enjoy the comfort of your own table for the day.
  • If you and nine colleagues or customers want to enjoy reserved seating at a premier table at the front of the venue, register for a corporate table for $1,000. Your firm will be recognized with its name on the table and its logo in the scrolling Tapestry PowerPoint. And, $300 will be designated toward the scholarship fund as your firm's tax-deductible donation.
  • Have questions? Please contact the office at or 260-481-6854 during regular business hours.

Morning Speaker Courtney Crozier Wins National Contest

Marci and Courtney Crozier

Courtney Crozier and her mother Marci Crozier, former competitors and current ambassadors for The Biggest Loser, were among nine contestants in the running to represent the popular television show by appearing in a commercial with Subway icon Jared and the season 14 winner. Toward the end of this season's grand finale, with Courtney at his side, Jared announced she had won. "I am really excited to see where it takes me from here," Courtney said. "It definitely wasn't something I was expecting in my life. I've learned through this whole process to try to embrace everything, and this is the next chapter. I am so grateful and blessed for everybody in Indiana who voted for me and supported me, no matter what."


Marci Crozier truly supported her daughter to win this opportunity.  "She is going to represent Indiana with pride and represent all the contestants on The Biggest Loser," Marci said. "She can represent people who have had great success with life changes and those who still struggle. She has experienced both."


The mother-daughter team competed together on season 11 of "The Biggest Loser." Courtney Crozier weighed 435 pounds when she decided to make lifestyle changes and lose weight. She lost 112 pounds before appearing on the show and another 110 during the show.


Hear Courtney and Marci present "The Journey" during the breakfast program at Tapestry on April 26!
