He was recently involved in the More 4 Mann youth program efforts at the Horace Mann building.

Garrett will be honored at the 9th Annual Legacy Event, Thursday, March 27, 6:30-8:30P at the Lake Union Café. The other honorees include Tita Begashaw, Community Activist & Laughter Therapist; and Linda Park, Co-Founder, Sustainable Path Foundation.
