Centre Crest remembers Kari Schlegel

On Dec. 15, 2016, the Centre Crest Culinary Services department lost dear friend and coworker Kari Schlegel to a fatal car accident. In response to this tragedy, her department wanted to do something special for Kari’s family and the scholarship fund has been created in her memory. On Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017 the department hosted “Taco Tuesday” in Kari’s honor, as well as a bake sale. “We chose tacos because they were one of Kari’s favorite foods.” A special cake that incorporated two of her favorite desserts, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and cake, was also served. Money raised at both events is being donated to The Kari Schlegel Scholarship Fund. After numerous donations from coworkers, families, friends, the Centre Care, Inc. Board of Trustees, and the Centre Crest Auxiliary, Centre Crest was able to donate $3,350 to Kari’s scholarship fund. The facility presented a check to Kari’s family (Deb, Jay and Kari’s sister Mindy) on Feb. 3. Centre Crest will host an annual fundraising meal in honor of Kari Schlegel and all proceeds will benefit the scholarship fund in her name. The facility thanks everyone for their support to honor the memory of such wonderful person.
