QC Chamber remembers Freese couple as active members of the community


Davenport, IA (KWQC)-The Quad Cities’ Chamber of Commerce honored Donna and Kevin Freese during an event at the Figge Art Museum Thursday.

A tribute video was played for guests, showcasing some of the events and organizations the Freeses were a part of.

Tonight’s event at the Figge used decorations and a theme sponsored by Donna Freese before her passing.  Chamber officials spoke about the couple, and their commitment to the QCA.

“Donna and Kevin, they’d always check their ego at the door, they had a collaborative spirit they would share in their successes with others, they would share responsibility for challenges, they would seek to be difference makers, and it didn’t matter if it was in Moline or Bettendorf or East Moline or Davenport . You would see them at any community event or non-profit event,” said Rene Gellerman, Senior Vice President of the QC Chamber.
