Christine, originally from Germany, has a passion for creating and celebrating cultural experiences. She is the founder of the Phoenix Oktoberfest in 2005 and the Fountain Hills Oktoberfest three years later. A July 4th Independence Day Celebration and festivities around the Irish Saint Patrick followed.

Living In Fountain Hills for the last twenty years gave Christine the inspiration for events around the world’s fifth tallest fountain that attract local, national and international visitors throughout the year.

Christine is the co-founder of Fountain Events Inc. a 501(c)3 organization. Christine and her partners Sam Coffee and Denise Ricketts coordinate these events as unpaid volunteers and event proceeds benefit programs that support Veterans, the Community Food Bank and High School Youth projects.
