Alex 'Tink' Wilson Legacy Fund

I love to conceive and create moments, events, environments that delight people, that enlarge and deepen their view of life, that make life glow, that make people feel good about themselves and others... grounded in the reality of folklife.
— Alex 'Tink' Wilson

A fund has been established to foster projects in the Boulder area to continue the life-work of Alex 'Tink' Wilson.
