When Lillian Bogatzky fought for a visa, she literally saved the life of her late husband’s nephew trapped in war-torn Poland during World War II. Records show he was one of only 250 people from Poland to enter the United States in 1938. In thanksgiving for the love he received from his Aunt Lil and Uncle Dave, he established a Fund to perpetuate the spirit of making someone’s life possible. The proceeds from the Fund will be used to serve disadvantaged children and seniors, populations he sees as society’s most vulnerable, just as he was when Aunt Lil stepped in.
