The event is held in memory of Melodie Wilson Oldenburg, a longtime television news anchor and breast cancer advocate who died from breast cancer in 2009 at age 59. Melodie Wilson Oldenburg was a co-founder of the MCW Cancer Center Board, and she served on the MCW Board of Trustees with John Bergstrom, Chairman and CEO of Bergstrom Corporation.
