Founding Board Member, Patricia Garman, recognized the need of the Foundation’s work and expressed her commitment through a generous Legacy Gift. Joined by Sue Gardner, Gail Johnstone, Marsha Henderson and Anne Saldanha, the Patricia Garman Torch Circle was created through this very special and important form of financial support.
