Stenstrom Companies, Ltd., will celebrate 60 years in business, and the corresponding birthday of current owner Robert W. "Bob" Stenstrom, with a Steel Toes and Stilettos event on Friday, October 4 at Giovanni's.
Founded in 1953, Stenstrom is broadly known in the region not only in the construction industry, but as a company that demonstrates loyalty to the community and commitment to philanthropy. One of the many recipients of Stenstrom's generosity through the years has been the Rock Valley College Foundation, where Bob Stenstrom currently serves as president. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Stenstrom will announce a special gift to the Rock Valley College Foundation and invite others to also support the Game Changer initiative. That generosity will play a particularly important role at the event, where gifts honoring Stenstrom Companies and Bob will be directed to the RVC Foundation's Game Changer initiative.
"The Stenstrom family's commitment to education in our community is remarkable," said Pam Owens, executive director of the RVC Foundation. "For them the idea of giving their time, talent, and treasure is not merely a platitude, but a way of life. It's also the responsibility that they model for all of their employees, which is truly extraordinary."
