Business Owner Honored with Queen Marinette Award
09/23/2019- The latest recipient of the Queen Marinette award has been named. Jenny Knox, owner of the Goose and Gander Finery in Marinette, was presented with the 6th annual Queen Marinette Award last week. Knox was nominated due to her efforts collecting, altering, and distributing formal dresses to girls who need them for homecoming and prom, but cannot afford to purchase them on their own. The award was presented during the M&M Area Community Foundation’s Women’s Giving Circle Annual Gathering and Grant Presentation night, where 13 other programs and projects throughout the region benefiting women and girls also received grant funding from the Women’s Giving Circle.
