10th Annual Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award Luncheon

Brenda is a priceless asset to the Colorado Springs community. With a powerful work ethic, discerning spirit, and kind heart, Brenda has established herself as a respected leader. Her approach to business has been one grounded in mentorship. Having benefited from a UCCS faculty member's interest in her personal success, she pays it forward by mentoring those around her.

Brenda spent over 36 years at BKD, LLP in Colorado Springs where she was the first woman to be appointed managing partner and the first woman to be elected to the company's governing board.

Today, she co-owns the newly renamed Garden of the Gods Collection. Her many and various charitable pursuits include founding the Colorado Springs Leadership Institute, co-founding the Colorado Springs Chamber Nonprofit Partnership, and spearheading the establishment of an endowment in the name of UCCS Accounting Professor Kirk Wilcox.

We are inspired by her passion, endurance, and integrity displayed over several decades. Please join us for our 10th annual celebration as we honor Brenda with the 2018 Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award.

Individual tickets and table sponsorships available.
