Keith Mardak and Judy Tjoe, MD

to receive ABCD Leadership and Visionary Awards

Awards to be presented at Date with a Plate on May 30, 2018

Keith Mardak, Chairman and CEO of Hal Leonard Corporation, will receive ABCD’s prestigious Power of One-to-One award. This annual award recognizes and celebrates corporations or individuals who have significantly helped ABCD expand its services in Wisconsin and the nation. In October 2017, Mr. Mardak offered ABCD a $2 million fundraising and service growth challenge grant to launch the Mardak 2020 Breast Cancer Initiative. Matched in part with ABCD’s own fundraising, this grant is the largest single gift in the organization’s history. Previous award recipients include Sendik’s Food Market in 2017 and Harley-Davidson in 2016.

Judy Tjoe, MD, breast oncology surgeon at Aurora Sinai Medical Center, will receive the first-ever Melodie Wilson Oldenburg Visionary Award. This new award, which will be awarded annually, is presented to an individual who has shown passion and leadership while providing hope, confidence and support for people impacted by breast cancer. Dr. Tjoe has demonstrated an incredible commitment to her breast cancer patients both in the clinical setting and beyond. As co-founder of Team Phoenix, a 14-week program that trains breast cancer survivors to complete a triathlon, Dr. Tjoe uses this program to encourage and empower breast cancer survivors through exercise.
