Chuck Berendes

What do you do?
I am an attorney and the General Manager at Gerrard Hoeschler Realtors.  I am also very involved in the Cub Scouts and Shelter Development, a local non-profit focused on housing issues in our community.

Why did you get involved in La Crosse SOUP?
I had a little involvement in SOUP in the past…it is a really cool concept, but it is the people involved in the project really drew me to SOUP.  I’m sure cool things are going to happen! 

What is your favorite place in La Crosse?
Either on a bluff top watching the action of the city pass by below or at the Oktoberfest grounds on the morning before the Maple Leaf Parade (it beats being at work by a long shot!).
