PIU President, Howard Merrell, is pleased to announce the launch of the Dr. Dave Owen Memorial Fund (DDOMF).
Almost three years ago, former President Dr. Dave Owen fell ill while on a “short” trip to California. Dave was soon diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoma. Instead of returning to Guam, Dave went to heaven this past spring.
A video, asking the question, “How does one honor a man like Dr. Dave Owen?” has been prepared as part of the material launching this capital fund drive.
This campaign answers the question posed in the video this way, “We honor someone like Dave by continuing the work to which he gave his life.” The DDOMF represents a big step in seeing that this takes place.
In brief the Dr. Dave Owen Memorial Fund has been established to raise $200,000 in Dr. Owen’s memory. This will enable PIU to move forward in three significant ways.
If other friends of PIU are interested in hosting an event to promote this campaign, please get in touch with DDOMF Secretary, Kathy Merrell at [email protected]. We will do our best to work with you, to be at your event either in person or via electronic connection.
