“I think that by helping people expand their minds by different experiences, it might spark a few to do something more with their lives.”
— George Manet
Along with Miss Applegate and Miss Goldman who introduced me to Baldwin Mountain and the Nutcracker in grade school, I was fortunate to have so many teachers who furthered my appreciation of the arts and laid the basis for my career as an executive in television and film. My legacy expands children’s minds through free tickets to cultural events and provides fellowships in perpetuity to artists, musicians, and painters to further their education so they can enrich the cultural life of our great city.
