The Woogie Fund

William A. “Woogie” Harris was a serial entrepreneur and businessman committed to helping small businesses reach their full potential. He extended his financial resources and his home to other entrepreneurs who lack adequate support to compete in their respective industries.

One example of Woogie’s charitable acts involved the acquisition of the manor on Apple Street in 1930; now known as the National Opera House. He and his wife, Ada B. lived in the home during the more exciting years of the house, in contrast with its earlier “quiet” years. Mr. Harris was known for his generosity.

This $10,000.00 Woogie Fund aims to continue Woogie’s generosity with small businesses and non-profits in communities across the nation.
