“I try to do a little fundraising every year for various charities that I believe in or have a close connection to. A close acquaintance of mine has a daughter that recently went through a long ordeal with cancer and fortunately has survived. Their family received support from the Make-A-Wish foundation and I think it played a part in her recovery.”
