Last updated on March 17th, 2020 at 01:35 pm

Kathryn Keppel, a partner with Milwaukee law firm Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown LLP (GRGB), is a champion of many charitable causes and organizations, preeminently the ALS Association-Wisconsin Chapter.

Battling ALS, a disease that claimed the life of former GRGB partner Jeffrey Kaufman, is a cause close to Keppel’s heart.

A longtime member of the ALS board of directors and currently board president, Keppel, along with the staff at her law firm, is instrumental in organizing The Evening of Hope, a black-tie gala to benefit the ALS Association.

“Kathy has put in so much emotion and fight for the ALS cause,” said Britt Frank, GRGB marketing director.   

In addition, Keppel volunteers her time to many fundraising events and nonprofit organizations in her hometown of La Crosse, including the Boys and Girls Club of Greater La Crosse and Aquinas Catholic Schools.
