Meet our Legacy Society Members

We set out investigating charities based on the passions and interests of each particular family member that we were trying to honor. When we got to my brother (who is still very much alive!) we decided to pick one of his favorite hobbies - scuba diving. Project AWARE was a perfect fit.
