COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wallick Companies have established a memorial fund in the name of their late co-founder, Sanford "Sandy" Goldston, to benefit cancer research and provide assistance to residents of affordable housing.
The Wallick Companies made an initial donation to the Sanford Goldston Memorial Fund of $10,000 to get the fund established.
"When Sandy passed away on Jan. 1, the affordable housing industry lost a leader, a proponent and a man of integrity," said Julie Wallick, co-owner of The Wallick Companies. "At our company, we lost a dear friend and mentor. Sandy Goldston will be sadly missed."
Goldston and his friend Jack Wallick co-founded The Wallick Companies in 1966. They combined friendship and business savvy to create one of the finest real estate companies in the country.
"Sandy and my father were two men who led by example," said Howard Wallick, co-owner for The Wallick Companies. "Sandy was a caring and compassionate man who believed that, quite simply, you always tried to do the right thing. His legacy is one that will be difficult to follow."
The Sanford Goldston Memorial Fund is being managed by the Columbus Jewish Foundation. Goldston and Jack Wallick were both deeply involved with the Foundation and played major roles in developing it into a respected community asset that capably supports both sectarian and nonsectarian causes. The Foundation will disburse grants to worthy cancer research and affordable housing-related causes.
Tax-deductible gifts can be made payable to the Sanford Goldston
Memorial Fund and can be sent to:
