It is with great sadness we say goodbye to one of our founders, Peter Tower, who passed away on Wednesday, February 5, 2014.
Peter and his wife Liz touched the lives of many with
their generosity, wanting to leave the world a better place than they found it. Their legacy will continue through the work of the Foundation.
