Dr Patrick Stuart
Left a lasting legacy in 1967
At age four Dr. Stuart was placed in his first foster home and by age 14 he had already lived with thirteen different families. There have been so many helpers along the way and giving back is what he was meant to do. He became a Pediatrician in an inner city clinic where he often cared for children at the edges of society. His legacy was to encourage children like himself to believe in themselves and give back in a positive way to their communities. Dr. Stuart utilized a charitable remainder trust to leave income for his daughter until her death and the remainder went to the cause he cared so much about.
This fall he’ll send 2 ex-foster care young adults to medical school.
Chick Evans Jr.
Left a lasting legacy in 1979
An avid golfer, “Chick” began his love of the game caddying at a local country club at the age of 8. He became a world class amateur golfer. Coming from a family of modest means, Chick was not able to complete college due to lack of adequate finances. So he decided to start a foundation with the endorsement money he received from golfing sponsors to finance college education for needy caddies.
Every year he awards over 200 deserving young caddies a full housing and tuition scholarship to local Universities.
