Alumna donates gift baskets to Plain & Fancy Ball

Diana Lynn Leistikow (’89, BEC) dreamed about running a business making gift baskets. And though she currently is a residential realtor working primarily with buyers at Home Real Estate, Centennial, she still loves making gift baskets. When the opportunity arose to support student scholarships by donating items for the Plain & Fancy Ball auction, she jumped at the chance to make more gift baskets. Leistikow has donated three baskets including a Burts Bees products, a picnic basket that includes a gift certificate to King Soopers, and a sailing-themed basked. When asked why supporting the college is important, Leistikow stated, “I didn’t go to college until I was 33, and it was a big eye opener for me going from business to college. It’s a big challenge for women, especially single moms, to go back to school. So anything I can do to help people is rewarding to me.” If you would like to contact Leistikow, please call her at 303-808-4038.

1. Two tickets to the ball.
