Anthony Graves Post 2009.jpgApril 7, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — Anthony E. Graves, an international marketing manager for Sun Microsystems and 1998 graduate of DePauw University, is featured as one of the "new faces of philanthropy" in today's edition of the Denver Post. "The son of a veterinarian, Graves is a mentor to young people struggling to find their way," writes Joanne Davidson. "He also leads Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity's holiday food drives, and last summer he got the members to donate interview-appropriate clothing for Denver Rescue Mission graduates ready to find a job."

The article begins, "The unlikely combination of a shaky economy and a city filled with 20- to 40-somethings jazzed about contributing to the greater good is putting a new face on how money is raised for some of Denver's charities. The Young Professionals movement, which includes many of the sons and daughters of Denver's longtime philanthropists, represents a changing of the guard, the first major leadership shift in 25 years. They want to do good works, but they also want to have fun, so their parties and causes don't resemble the types of events their parents Denver   Post.jpgthrow."
