11th Annual Banquet Fundraiser

  • Friday, May 11, 2018
  • The Berkshire, Sheboygan
  • Entertainment:  Mark Gungor

Join us for an evening of FUN and fundraising with the one and only Mark Gungor of Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage! Mark will be speaking about his 2 new books and showing us that couples don’t necessarily need to learn any new skills, we just need to apply the skills we already have towards each other!  

Treat Him Like a Dog

Women love to hold and pet their dogs, always be there for their children, smile at strangers, allow the cab driver to take them where they need to go and communicate clearly at work. What if they used these already finely tuned skills with their husbands? In this hilarious presentation, Mark shows women how they need only apply to their husbands, skills they have already perfected in every day life.

Treat Her like a Truck

Mark uses the same approach with the men. They know how to put in the necessary maintenance on their trucks, plan their vacation adventures, focus on their ideal sports car, commit their total attention to the television and make their teammates feel valued and appreciated. What if they simply do what they already do well and apply it to their wives?

COMING IN 2018 : Becoming Compatible (Mark Gungor’s Flag Page)

  • Saturday, September 29, 2018 -- 6:00-8:00pm
  • Speaker:  Phil Gungor (Mark’s son!)
  • Location: TBD

The word compatible comes from the Latin word compati, which literally means “to suffer with”. A couple who can suffer with each other is, in fact, the very definition of compatible. Being compatible is not about reaching a state of nirvana, it is about having someone you can do life with. Life in all it’s ugly, messy, painful, glorious, wonderful and marvelous state.  

The word for two people who always think and feel the same, share the same interests and always embrace the same goals is not compatible, it’s delusional. The key to succeeding with anyone - business partners, friends, family, children - and especially a spouse, is understanding. 

Phil Gungor will help you succeed in any relationship by understanding the key motives of the other person - by intentionally Becoming Compatible.
