November 16th, 2017 · Leave a Comment

Two decades after his mother’s tragic death led to the creation of the Monique Burr Foundation for Children’s (MBF) Foundation in her name, Austin Burr is carrying on her legacy by joining the Board of Directors. Austin will attend his first board meeting Tuesday, Nov. 14 at MBF’s Jacksonville headquarters, 7807 Baymeadows Road E. Suite 202. A Senior Audit Associate and Certified Public Accountant at KPMG in Jacksonville, Austin will join his father, MBF founder Edward E. Burr, on the board. Ed Burr established the Monique Burr Foundation in 1997, on the one-year anniversary of his wife’s death. By then, Austin was 6 and his brother Garrison was 3. Monique Burr had been revered as a compassionate children's advocate and the founder of a nationally recognized nursing and day-care program for sick and disabled kids, the PALS Center.
