about the Foundation
Direct quotes from Wally Kurth
"We are non-profit and at the
end of the year all the money we raise, we then donate to other children's
charities. We consider ourselves a children's children's charities, everything
does go to different charities. We've helped or in the past, we started out
helping out the Ryan White Foundation, pediatric AIDS and now we donate to
cystic fibrosis in Montana; we help out an organization in Santa Cruz, kids with
cancer, make a wish, Jacob's Heart from Santa Cruz, Sunshine Kids, Brian's
"One of the things that we are
going to try to do in the future, we were talking about this, is really try to,
since we are a musical entity, Kurth & Taylor, we want to supply and gather
CD's, used DVD's, other things music and other stuff for some of these places so
they'll have a great library of music, DVD players for the kids to have in their
Later on, Kurth plans to
implement the CD music/movie idea by asking fans at future events to donate
their old CD's and DVD's players, walkmans etc. This foundation plans to take
this new phase to an international level, citing daughter, Meghan's orphanage
work in Africa, where music, movies and electronic devices would be welcome.

Some comments from Lisa about the weekend:
Bingo night was fun. I did not win, but it was fun. My friend won. It
hysterical. They had a bingo paddle and they paddled anyone who said
did not have bingo. Then they offered the first person to bid $100 to get
paddled by Wally Kurth. The winner bent over and he paddled her three
did not bid in time. I am not kidding. This happened and everyone loved
One girl bid $500 for the shirt off Wally's back. Not only did she take
the shirt, but she went inside the shirt with him.
Exciting evening. Can you print this?-well, it really happened!!!
GH party-I won a silent auction bid. Spent $500 to have my picture in
in Depth with my fave GH actor, who is John J. York and he gave me a BIG
too-all worth it. I mean he gave me a bear hug-wow!!! He is so sweet. As
worked one side of the room, several actors already left before I could
picture such as Jed Allen and Lindsey Leatherman. There are a couple of good
pictures with me with the actors. It was hard getting them alone-I tried
fans but not easy. Couple of good ones. Great one of Ned Ashton (Wally
Kurth) and family.
