EdwardNorton: Matt Damon intro'd me to this guy when making Rounders. He's amazing. We both love him. more story from me in the link
I met Tony Hillery back when I was making the movie "Rounders". Matt Damon tipped me to Tony's terrific car service company, TZR, and, as he always is, Matt was holding an Ace up his sleeve. Tony is pure class...self-made man, family man and a true citizen who cares about his community and country. After many early mornings and late nights in cars with him discussing politics and the challenges of America Tony said to me one day "You know I got tired of hearing myself just talk about everything that's wrong with the world and I decided I needed to DO something...so I started this project. Can I tell you about it?" Within 15 minutes he had sketched out the idea and the mission of Harlem Grown and the project to restore the Harlem Success Garden.
I'm inspired by his passion and I'm proud to say I've joined his Board along with Matt D and we're raising all the support we can.
