Tom Serrin, also known as PaPa Tom, was a driving force behind the creation of both the Triad VisionWalk and the Greensboro Winston Salem Chapter. Tom worked with FFB Board Member, Marilyn Green and volunteers from across the Triad to host a wildly successful Inaugural VisionWalk in 2010.
Holley Williams jumped in with both feet! She began with the Foundation in 2012, and though her time has been brief, her impact has been invaluable. Holley is assistant controller for the Greensboro Auto Auction as well as the other companies owned and operated by Dean and Marilyn Green. Initially, she was a dinner committee member for our NC Dining in the Dark. Over the past three years, she’s raised over $30,000 in sponsorships for the dinners. She also devotes dozens of hours each week making phone calls and personal visits to potential FFB partners.
