The 2021 Decadent Desserts to Your Door was a great success. Women in Northern Colorado spent an afternoon enjoying charcuterie, wine and shopping all to benefit women and girls in Weld County. Thank you to all who participated, and many thanks to our great sponsors who are listed below. If you had a party, please send us your photos so we can post them on the website.

The Third Annual Champion for Women Award
Recipient: Betty L. Tointon
Due to Decadent Desserts 2020 being canceled, we couldn't present this award. Please read about our reward recipient.
The Champion for Women Award recognizes women who have an ongoing dedication to the Women's Fund of Weld County after their time on the board is complete. This includes continued personal and financial investments to the organization, attending organization functions and acting as an ambassador for the organization in the community. Past recipients of this award include Julie Constance and Kristi Thomas. We are honored to announce the 2020 Champion for Women Award recipient is one of the organization’s founding members, Betty L. Tointon.
Betty L. Tointon graduated from McPherson High School, went on to complete her first two years of college at McPherson College and then transferred to Kansas State University where she graduated with a bachelor's degree in Food and Nutrition with a minor in Journalism. The transfer to Kansas State University was a change that would set the course for her future. While at K-State, Betty was asked to run for Senior Class Secretary by her now husband of almost 65 years, Robert G. (Bob) Tointon. They began dating and the rest is history.
Betty kept busy raising their two boys, Bill and Bryan, and was very active in her community. Betty has always been active in her church and was also involved with the Creative Arts Center, American Association of University Women, and United Way.
Together, Betty and Bob created the Tointon Institute for Educational Change, a program designed to provide K-12 educators with the opportunity to become better leaders. Betty is also a former board member of the NCMC Hospital Foundation and the Kansas State University Foundation. Betty is also co-founder and former Chair of the Women’s’ Fund of Weld County.
Over the years, Betty received many awards, some of which are the United Way Humanitarian Award, the Aims Community College Foundation Award for Excellence, A Woman’s Place Business Woman of the Year, and the Kansas State University Presidents Award for Excellence.
Betty has always loved antiques and in 1989 she opened Antiques at Lincoln Park in downtown Greeley. There, she kept busy buying, selling and collecting antiques. Betty operated the Antique Store for over 20 years and loved every minute of it. Betty was also a pioneer in downtown Greeley, helping the area grow and become the thriving district it is now.
Betty has been married to her wonderful husband, Bob, since 1955. Together they have two sons. Their son Bill is married to Janie Jill. They have two kids, Monique and Dillon Potts. Monique is mother to Bob and Betty’s two great grandchildren, Bryson and Peyton. Bob and Betty’s son Bryan is married to Judi and they have two sons, Joey and Steven. Bob and Betty have lived in Greeley since 1963.
THANK YOU Betty for your years of dedication to improving the lives of women and girls in Weld County.
DECADENT DESSERTS ALREADY SHARED
APRIL 20, 2019
What better way to celebrate our 20th anniversary and the 12th annual Decadent Desserts than bringing back the "Roaring 20's"! Over 400 guests gathered at the UNC Ballroom in Greeley, CO dressed as flappers showing off their 1920's headbands, pearls, and fringed dresses. Beautiful bags and delicious desserts were enjoyed by all.
