Mary Gronnert: I hung up my dancing shoes until …

Schneider's Associate, Mary Gronnet Performs the Jive in 2013

Yes, I am doing it again...

After winning the “People’s Choice” award in 2013 for my Jive with Michael Witte, I hung up my dancing shoes.

I was invited back to participate in “Dancing with Our Stars 2018: All-Star Edition” on February 24, 2018, again with Michael of Simply Ballroom! With encouragement from my family, friends and Schneider associates, I accepted the challenge.

This year is different. While I only have one dance to learn and perform, I have gained an incredible teammate, Paul Kardish, as part of “Team Schneider” to raise funds for the Northeast Wisconsin Red Cross chapter and take home the MIRROR BALL trophy.

Please consider a donation to Team Schneider.

Paul Kardish: Embarrassing myself for a good cause

Schneider's Associate, Paul Kardish Excited to Participate in this year's event

I will be participating — yes, dancing — in the "Dancing with Our Stars 2018: All-Star Edition” on February 24, 2018! I decided to take part in DWOS All-Stars to help maximize donations on behalf of the greatest Red Cross chapter in the U.S. (Northeast Wisconsin)! Also, it is just something I would never do … so why not embarrass yourself for a good cause!

I am very fortunate to serve as a member of the board of the American Red Cross for Northeast Wisconsin. The members of the board, led by Steve Hansen and Pat Exarhos, are some of the best in the business and our Chapter is in great hands! Can’t thank all the Red Cross volunteers enough for all they do — they are truly unsung heroes!

It would be absolutely amazing if you would consider donating to this great event.
