Mr. Garcia goes to Washington

It did not take long for Tony Garcia, the new CEO of The Independent Order of Foresters, to embrace the fraternal “differentiator” – and to communicate the value of the important role fraternals play in the financial and community service arenas to the leader of the free world.

Foresters is a major supporter of KaBOOM! This national non-profit is dedicated to the goal of ensuring that all children, particularly the 16 million American children living in poverty, get the balanced and active play they need to thrive. Since 1966, KaBOOM!, working with community partners, has built, improved and opened more than 16,000 playgrounds, engaged more than 1,000,000 volunteers and served more than 7,400,000 children. Tony was invited to be one of the representatives of KaBoom! at this year’s national day of service in DC on 9/11.


As you can see from these photos, Tony had the chance to work side by side with the President and First Lady and was impressed by their authenticity and understanding of the role community service volunteers play in improving the lives of Americans all across the country. And thanks to Tony, Mr. and Mrs. Obama know just a little more about how fraternals help fund and facilitate such good works.

Thanks, Tony, for helping us spread the Alliance’s message all the way to the White House!
