In 2011, Wick drew negative media attention for her support of a church in Black Earth, Wisconsin, when its pastor was accused of promoting child abuse. Wick and her husband helped found the church by donating between $500,000 and $600,000 to it. Under the advisement of her lawyer, Wick refused to comment on the case at the time. The pastor of the church was later found guilty.
