The 2022 Sustaining Campaign honors Rey Boezi for his dedicated volunteerism to the Toledo Design Collective.
Rey’s ability to make everyone smile will forever be remembered.
IN HONOR OF
Reynold “Rey” Boezi
Rey Boezi, the Project Manager during the restoration of the Valentine Theatre, originally came to Toledo to apply his expertise in planning and his empathy for those living on the margins in the Warren Sherman Neighborhood over 40 years ago. He continued to share that commitment as a TDC board member for almost 20 years working as a volunteer on numerous Neighborhood Master Plans. He loved community engagement, he passionately advocated for the value of good planning and he was a mentor and role model for countless TDC interns.
