In deciding who to feature in our first donor spotlight, we quickly chose Julia and Chris Toll. Their dedication to IIK has been a constant throughout their 19 years of marriage. They credit their own introduction to the same person who introduced them to IIK – IIK Board Chair, Eric Hilty. Not only are they among our most generous donors, their family has also given their time and talents over the years.
Chris has attended 15 of the 19 Jane-A-Thon events and is always a fixture at the top of the fundraising leader board. He has participated on the planning committee and engaged many colleagues from Holland & Hart to ski. With their two daughters, Julia coordinated Regis High School’s Pajama Jam which featured IIK, and she is currently planning a volunteer opportunity with Challenge School for the benefit of IIK. Chris’ son Erik planned a fundraising golf tournament that raised money and awareness for IIK; while his other son, Alex, has joined Chris for most Jane-A-Thons, volunteered on the planning committee and has been an active supporter since he was a teenager. Julia and Chris have so wonderfully instilled the value of philanthropy in their family. It is an honor to be in partnership with them in this great work!
