GRACE would like to introduce the 2023 GRACE Gala Co-Chairs, Madeline and David Ricci! GRACE is thrilled to embark on this year’s planning adventure with two spectacular Co-Chairs!
David is originally from Milwaukee, Wi. and Madeline from Miami Fl. and have been married for 22 years. They have two daughters, Amber and Nina. Together they decided to embark on a journey that neither of them could have dreamed of.
They spent a combined 50 years in Corporate America. David held senior leadership roles for several Fortune 500 companies. Madeline spent eighteen years in management roles at Associate Financial Services where she became a thought leader on customer experience.
When the stock market crashed in 2008, the Ricci’s decided to start embarking on their own businesses, the first being Bilingual Notary Network (BNN Services). BNN Services is a national signing company that relies on cutting-edge technology, integration capabilities, problem solving, and providing an excellent customer experience to support the mortgage, banking, and Title insurance and legal industries and their clients.
The Ricci’s also opened many other businesses including the Hook Fitness Center/ Vitality Booth. The Hook Fitness Center believes that every woman has the right and the ability to define, develop and become empowered through fitness whereas the Vitality Booth is a proprietary patent-pending wellness booth that incorporates halotherapy, red light therapy, oxygen concentration and a negative ion immersion all stacked together in a 20- minute session. They are also Area Partners in DFW for beem Light Sauna, an innovative infrared light therapy studios providing members with a multi-faceted approach to health. They look to bring the first studio to Texas by the end of 2nd Quarter 2023. They also are Area Developers in Tarrant and Dallas County for The DRIPBaR an IV infusion concept that starts at the cellular level. Lastly, the Ricci’s are sought after experts in mentoring and coaching first time entrepreneurs to grow and scale their businesses under the brand Trustedpreneurs.
David and Madeline bring so much more to the GALA Co-Chair position than their business savvy. They both believe in having a servant’s heart and are always willing to give back to the community any chance they get. Madeline and David are big GRACE advocates, supporting and volunteering at various GRACE programs including, the GRACE Community Clinic, Transitional Housing Christmas Cottage, and the GRACE Gala. They also sponsor a scholarship for Holy Trinity Catholic School. Additionally, they support Feeding America and Operation Underground Railroad working to end Human Trafficking and have donated to many other organizations in the community.
“David and I genuinely love to serve people,” said Madeline. It is why we are such a great team. Servant leadership is our love language. We are not afraid to roll up our sleeves and do what’s best for the community.”
GRACE is so excited to welcome Madeline and David Ricci as this year’s GRACE Gala co-chairs. For more information on how you can be involved in this year’s Gala, please reach out to our Special Events Manager at Events@GRACEGrapevine.org.
