The Foundation is named in memory of Andrew Grene who perished in Port au Prince with so many thousand others in the earthquake of January 12th 2010. His belief in the joy, spirit, and potential of all people was an inspiration to those who knew him.
Here's an article from the Evanston Now site talking about both Andrew Grene and the fundraiser.
