Michael G. Gnau Leaves $2.8 Million Estate to AASK
AASK is enormously grateful for the recent bequest of Michael G. Gnau. Mr. Gnau was a resident of Santa Rosa, California, and was a supporter of AASK for many years. He and his mother were longtime donors. Like so many others in the early 1970's the Gnaus were touched by the story of AASK s founders, Bob and Dorothy DeBolt who adopted 14 children with various disabilities. Mr. Gnau himself was disabled, used a wheelchair, and had no children or other immediate family. Now thousands of children with special needs will find loving, permanent families through the generosity of Michael Gnau.

We would like to acknowledge and thank all the people who have made it possible for us to be so successful.
