His philanthropic spirit is evident in his ongoing involvement with the Augusta Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, where he was honored as Man of the Year in 2015. Additionally, he maintains his connection to the broader industry as a member of The International Council of Shopping Centers.
