Madison – As a way to celebrate and promote free enterprise in the Badger State, the Stoughton-based Flowers Family Foundation will present the third annual Wisconsin Business Achievement Award at the State of Wisconsin Business Luncheon, presented by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, on October 18.
