2011 Matthew Wiederkehr Leadership Award - Caroline Budner


Since the founding of Matt’s Promise and our very first event in 2006 Caroline has contributed tirelessly to our work and cause. She is always there to help handle the details. Her efforts support our annual event, help us to keep the day to day operations flowing smoothly and she volunteers her time and organizational skills to all of our events and activities. Caroline says, “It has been so fulfilling to be able to work with the team at Matt’s Promise. I have never been directly involved with a charity organization before so this has been a wonderful learning experience. I know Benjy and Tracy Seckler personally and am grateful to be able to contribute to finding a treatment or cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.”

Caroline attended University of Delaware and worked in Advertising and Public Relations prior to joining Randy Reiff 9 years ago.

As the Executive Director of Matt’s Promise I want to personally thank her for her dedication, support and contribution to Matt’s Promise. There are so many pieces of the puzzle that she handles for us on a daily basis and her volunteer efforts are essential to the success we have had over the years.

Thank you Caroline for everything you do!
