RAM ABOUT TOWN
Andrew Whitworth has a passion for charity work that dates back to seeing the horror of Hurricane Katrina unfold before his eyes.

“Our basketball arena became a triage,” he recalled in a column for Cincinnati.com
“Players delivered beds and set them up. We collected extra gear from the athletic dorms to give to these people. It was something. They had nothing.
“Katrina hit when I was a senior at LSU. Baton Rouge went from half a million people to a million, in a week.
“We waited 40 minutes to get gas. We didn’t have power for two weeks. For weeks and months, grocery stores didn’t have milk.
“I took one lesson from that: How grateful I was, for all I had.”
