Providence St. Peter Foundation Welcomes New Special Events Manager
We are pleased to welcome Stacey Genzlinger as our special events manager. Prior to joining Providence St. Peter Foundation, Stacey was the Director of Member Services with Olympia Master Builders for 13 years, responsible for overseeing large and successful events across South Puget Sound.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Stacey to our team,” says Peter Brennan, Executive Director for Providence St. Peter Foundation. “She brings a deep understanding of our community and a compassionate perspective that will help us thrive well into the future.”
Stacey brings with her a passion for philanthropy and wide and diverse community involvement with non-profit organizations including Saint Martin’s University, Briggs Community YMCA, Capital Playhouse, and United Way of Thurston County. Stacey is familiar with Providence, where she volunteered with her Bullmastiff, named Peyton, in the Providence Animal Assisted Activities and Therapies program.
Stacey will manage Providence St. Peter Foundation’s popular Christmas Forest, and other events and fundraising efforts. Christmas Forest is the Foundation’s largest fund-raising event, generating more than $8.6 million throughout its history. The 26th annual Christmas Forest attracted more than 4,100 visitors and raised a record $626,000, which benefits the mission of Providence to provide health care to all, with special concern for the poor and vulnerable.
Stacey says, “I am excited to join Providence St. Peter Foundation, and I look forward to working with all the great volunteers and patrons that help to make Christmas Forest such an outstanding and beloved community event.”
