Karen Lake Buttrey (1945-2010)

“We were eager to replicate the philanthropic mentoring role that my father (Thomas H. Lake) played for so many people. But we also wanted there to be time for conversation and reflection. Dad was very thoughtful, but with a practical bent. He loved getting people together to talk and to look at things from different perspectives.”

Karen Lake Buttrey (1945-2010)
