Mark Starosciak | Founder
Mark founded WineLeague® in 2006 with the help of his compatriot, local Denver attorney David Ball. The idea was simple in theory, yet they learned many lessons along the way, much of which happened through good old trial and error!
Given the overwhelming success of WineLeague® in Denver, Mark is dedicated to helping other cities across the US start their own leagues. The goal is ambitious: A WineLeague® in each of the nation’s top 20 cities by 2022. Nothing like a stretch goal to get everyone focused!
Mark is a Certified Financial Planner™ and founded Infinium Investment Advisors, LLC in 2009 after a decade as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch. In his spare time, he enjoys exploring Colorado’s beautiful rivers and lakes in search of trout. He is also an avid skier and plays competitive 8-ball pool.
Chelsea Augelli | Denver Commissioner, Co-President
Chelsea joined WineLeague® as a Board Member in 2015 and subsequently transitioned into Co-President in 2017. After attending her first WineLeague® event, Chelsea immediately knew that the group was the tool she was looking for to foster her passions: wine, event planning and philanthropy. Chelsea enjoys working with each individual beneficiary to further the mission and goals of their organization, to engage young professionals in the community, and to execute successful WineLeague® events.
Chelsea recently graduated with her Juris Doctorate at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and plans to go into Family Law. When Chelsea isn’t busy planning WineLeague® events, she enjoys learning about (and drinking) wine, cooking, doing yoga, snowboarding, and enjoying the Colorado outdoors.
Callie Borgmann | Co-President
Callie joined WineLeague® in 2018 as a board member after attending her very first event in 2017. It might be a stretch to call it ‘love at first sight,’ but she quickly realized that our organization combines two things she loves: wine and charity. Callie brings deep experience in media and communications, and serves as our other Co-President.
Callie recently graduated with her Juris Doctorate the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and plans to go into Employment Law. She is originally from Colorado and grew up in Aurora. Callie loves to go to sporting events (go Rockies!) and enjoys going to concerts.
