I came across this in the kitchen the other day. Clearly our boundaries between work and family are very blurred – haha! Next thing you know he will want to be compensated for stamping.

But speaking of new employees, we would like to welcome aboard Courtney Wilkerson as our event manager! She will be coordinating all aspects of our benefit 2014 for pediatric cancer research in September!


Courtney spent ten years working for Tommy Bahama in Marketing and Ecommerce. She brings a wealth of marketing, event planning and brand strategy experience to our BTF Team. Courtney is a University of Washington grad and married her husband (and my cousin) Mark last summer! They live in Kirkland and enjoy spending time with family and friends, cheering on the Huskies and traveling.

We would like to publicly say a huge thank you to my sister Kristen who has volunteered to coordinate our benefit the past four years  – on top of her full-time job! Kristen did incredible work for us, as you all know. Thankfully she will remain with BTF in an advisory capacity because the good news is… she is still my sister and Ben and Ryan’s Aunt. 

But we are super excited and very grateful to have Courtney joining our team. There will be other changes in store for Ben Towne Foundation this year and we look forward to filling you in as the year unfolds.

In the meantime…welcome Courtney!!
