Denise Pape - Administrator & Manpower

Denise has been the admin for the Last Fling since January 2015. Her favorite part about Last Fling is seeing everything come together. Being the admin, she gets to work on the behind the scenes details from filing of permits to breaking down the event. The whole experience is very rewarding for her and makes for a memorable weekend for the city, attendees, and volunteers who work the event. For Admin Questions, Click HERE to email Denise.

Tony Barranco - Food & Beverage
Tony has been a member of the Naperville Jaycees since 2005.  He started out as a general volunteer in sponsors & rentals before getting involved with Beverage.  His wife, Steph, was on the EC in 2009 and he in 2012 where he was the Beverage & JC Food chair. In 2013 & 2014 he was the Finance Chair.  A fond memory he has of the Last Fling is being in Junior High and going to it with his friends.  The excitement and anticipation that was generated is one he will never forget.  He remembers going to Fling in 8th grade and then having to come home on Labor Day and do his homework for the next day. Tony thoroughly enjoys being on the EC for so many years.  His hopes is that someday that his children will become Jaycees and be involved with the Last Fling.  Giving back to our community is important and the Last Fling, in conjunction with the Jaycees, affords us that opportunity.  Click HERE to email Tony.
