(June 15, 2006) — In life, Robert B. Wegman was one of Monroe County's most prominent philanthropists, donating tens of millions of dollars to a range of causes. That legacy of generosity will continue after his death.

The late patriarch of Wegmans Food Markets Inc. left most of his estate to a foundation that carries the family name, according to a copy of his will filed in Monroe County Surrogate's Court in Rochester.

The Wegman Family Charitable Foundation focuses on projects that support young people and education, one of Wegman's cherished interests."
