      George gives back more than anyone I have ever known. I was the development director for Special Olympics here in Austin several years back. One of the largest fundraisers at that time was the Torch Run where police officers from across Texas sell t-shirts to help pay for the Special Olympics sporting events. George was ALWAYS the top fund raiser from Austin and also participated in many of the Special Olympics special events. He's a true hero with a heart of gold.
