Meet Rich & Diane

Great Lakes Promotions was started by Rich & Diane Napierkowski back in 1988. As parents of five they understand the importance of those extra special learning experiences that helped change his own children’s lives. Whether it be a great playground experience, that perfect instrument, or a field trip that helped changed their perspective, those extra special things are what drive children to greatness. Great Lakes Promotions partners with schools around the Great Lakes region to help make their fundraiser the best that it can be. Fundraising has changed a lot since 1988, but the service, attention to detail, and the care that goes into each fundraiser hasn’t. They’d love to partner with your school to help your children do great things.
