Experience Eugene’s legacy through this series of heartwarming stories.
"To be successful in retail you have to like it AND love it. I loved what I did. I found all the locations, signed all the leases, had 9,000 employees and I did not lose sight of my goals."
"A big part of Arbor Drugs’ success was my good nose for picking good people. We placed people in positions where they could grow and develop their full potential."
"After 35 years of running one of the largest and most successful drugstore chains, I sold the business to CVS and made more time to devote myself to helping others through philanthropy."
"It’s very simple… family was first, work was second and religion was third. So when it came to leaving a legacy and carrying on tradition from generation to generation, I started with my daughters."
"I was 10 years old when I experienced my first spark of philanthropy. Since then, giving back has just been a part of who I am."
