ALAMO, CALIF. (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 27, 2018
Former Polycom, Inc. CEO Andy Miller is continuing his campaign to increase support for under-recognized charitable organizations like the the Moment by Moment Foundation. Moment by Moment works with professional photographers who volunteer their time to create memorable portraits of families with children who are battling life-limiting illnesses.
This is the second consecutive year that Miller, through the Andrew Miller Foundation (AMF), has provided financial support to Alamo-based Moment by Moment, which sends volunteer professional photographers into hospitals and outpatient facilities to take pictures of families with terminally ill children. After their free photo session, families receive a flash drive containing the resulting full-resolution images, as well as a gift card to print and frame their pictures.
Karen Henrich, founder and director of Moment by Moment, says that her organization, with help from about 50 volunteer photographers, has created portraits of more than 3,000 families in the San Francisco and Sacramento areas over the past dozen years. This year’s goal is to photograph 600 additional families, she says, but that will require substantially more funds.
“Moment by Moment helps families to record priceless memories of what are often some of their last happy moments together with their children,” says Miller. “This remarkable program deserves wider support, and a great way to accomplish that is by attending one of its upcoming fundraising events.”
Moment by Moment’s next fundraiser is scheduled for March 21 from 6-9 p.m. at the Auburn Lounge wine bar in Danville, Calif. Attendees can enjoy an assortment of fine wines, appetizers, desserts and a silent auction for $85 per person. Raffle tickets for a $3,500 resort stay at Tucson’s Miraval Arizona Resort and Spa are also available, and the winner need not be present to win.

Miller, a veteran technology-industry CEO who has served as CEO of Polycom and Tandberg, and in other senior positions for companies including Cisco, IPC Systems and Monster Worldwide, launched the AMF foundation last year to increase awareness and financial support for under-recognized charitable organizations. Besides Miller’s own initial funding, the foundation raises additional support from other donors, with all funds raised going directly to selected charities or scholarships.
Miller has more than two decades of executive experience in industry leading technology and telecom companies. As a senior operating executive, he has excelled in focusing on strategic growth areas, leading global expansion, and driving improved profitability. As a director, he has collaborated on successful enterprise communications IPOs, including Gigamon (GIMO).
In addition to guest lecturing at UCLA, USC and Stanford, Andy has spoken at the World Economic Forum in Davos and has given keynote addresses at Microsoft’s Worldwide Mobile Congress and the Aspen Ideas Festival.
