Overland Park, KS - December 17, 2020

This is a proud moment for True North Hotel Group and for the Wiens family as I announce that my dad and company founder Lew Wiens is one of only six Ingram’s 2020 “Local Heroes,” honored for his extraordinary, years-long philanthropic giving to, and volunteerism with Cross-Lines Community Outreach in Kansas City and many other organizations. We invite you to read and share Lew’s feature which appears in the publication’s 24th annual Philanthropy Special Edition. Please join me in saluting this special man who has done so much for our community, for his family, and for you, our True North Family.

Here, also, is a message from Susila Jones, executive director, Cross-Lines Community Outreach: “I can’t think of a more deserving person in Kansas City; Lew has been one of our Cross-Lines Heroes for years and it’s so fitting that he’s now being honored throughout our community by Ingram’s.”

Congratulations, Lew!

President of True North Hotel Group
