Kristi’s Wish Raises $29,000 to Make Holidays Bright for Area
Chances are if you stopped in one of the Schrader’s Country Stores around the region you noticed the bright blue and white stars posted in the windows and around the store. There’s also a good chance the clerk behind the counter asked if you would be interested in donating to Kristi’s Wish and your name and donation was on one of those stars. Thousands of people donated to Kristi’s Wish raising over $10,000 to help to make the holidays brighter for four Fort Collins organizations.
Wanting to provide a nice holiday for area residents in need and assist organizations closely aligned with the Fund’s mission of supporting women, children and families, the Foundation chose Boys & Girls Club of Larimer County, Crossroads Safe House, SAVA, and Larimer County Community Corrections for Women as this year’s recipients. In addition, we were able to support No Barriers and Homeward Alliance.
We want to thank High Country Beverage for underwriting all expenses for Kristi’s Wish and we are especially grateful for the staff at Schrader’s Country Stores.

Empowering Young Women through Educational Scholarships
Proceeds from this year’s golf tournament will go to provide scholarships to young women we would like to see continue their education and their vision for a better life. Scholarships are awarded in both traditional and non-traditional areas, such as hair dresser, culinary arts, or other vocations that often do not offer scholarship or grant funding.
The young women who have benefited from the Kristi Visocky Memorial Foundation Scholarships are the very types Kristi supported: young, displaced girls and single moms, working to pull their life back together and create a better life for themselves and their families.
One such woman, a single mom of three little boys, who was embarking on nursing school, put it this way when told she would receive a $2000 scholarship to Front Range Community College, “You don’t know what this means to me. It’s not just the money for school, it’s that you believe in me and believe that I can do this!”
