Through her entire life, Eugenia Dobson scrimped and saved. Although she and her husband did quite well, they lived frugally, putting away everything for a rainy day.
Dobson died last year. She never did get around to spending their fortune. She had amassed a whopping 35.6 million dollars!
Just before she passed away, she gave it all away to charity. The money will be divided between the University of Miami’s Diabetes Research Institute and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Originally, Dobson’s name was kept secret. She didn’t want folks to know about her gift. Now that she has passed on the secret is out and many people are grateful for her kindness.
