Benefit for James Foley Legacy Fund

    GREENVILLE — The death of award-winning journalist James Foley at the hands of ISIS terrorists last month has shocked and saddened many people in the Moosehead Lake region, especially Bill Foley and his wife, Sally Johnson.
    James Foley was Bill’s nephew, the son of his brother and sister-in-law, John and Diane Foley of Rochester, N.H.

    The local family owns and operates Moosehead Hills Cabins and Bill Foley is also the Greenville High School softball coach and an assistant soccer coach.
    On Sunday, Sept. 28, the Stress Free Moose will host a wild game dinner to raise funds for the James W. Foley Legacy Fund set up by his parents.
    The meal will be cooked by well-known Greenville Inn chef Curtis “Bear” Hilliard and Bill Foley will serve as guest bartender, according to Stress Free Moose owner Stacy Duncan. “We’re still working on the details, but admission will be by donation,” said Duncan. “Sally and Bill have meant so much to the community, so we’re looking forward to a big turnout.”
    The purpose of the legacy fund, according to a statement by the Foley family, is to “honor everything he stood for.” Funds will be used toward building a resource center for families of American hostages and fostering a global dialogue on governmental policies in hostage crises; supporting American journalists reporting from conflict zones; and promoting quality educational opportunities for urban youth.
    James Foley, 40, was kidnapped on Nov. 22, 2012 in Syria and executed on Aug. 19, 2014.
