The Door County Community Foundation honored Dr. John Herlache as its philanthropist of the year during a luncheon held on Wednesday. Herlache has provided leadership for several initiatives including the efforts of the Sturgeon Bay Rotary Club, Door-Tran, and the Belgian Heritage Foundation. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy told the crowd through a story that Herlache knows if the individual parts of the county are healthy, the community is stronger because of it.
The Door County Community Foundation gives thousands of dollars every year to support the area’s 350 different non-profit groups.
