The Martinez Foundation publicly recognized Jerry and Charlene Lee for their support at its gala in October. In addition to serving on the Martinez Foundation Gala Committee, the Lees provided invaluable input and counsel on the formation of The Martinez Foundation.
Jerry Lee has agreed to serve as an advisory board member.
As dedicated philanthropists, the couples have given years of service and support to several organizations throughout the Greater Seattle area.
The Martinez Foundation presented them with an autographed Mariners jersey for their support. The gala raised $433,000 for Latino kids and minority teachers.
