Penn State’s Brandon Short Launches Anti-Gun Violence Foundation In Honor Of Daughter

Former Penn State football player and current Board of Trustees member Brandon Short announced the launch of the “The Karli Short Better Tomorrow Foundation” on Friday, June 10, in honor of his daughter, Karli, who lost her life to gun violence.

The foundation will financially support students at Penn State Greater Allegheny who have been impacted by gun violence. The Greater Allegheny campus is located in McKeesport, which is where Karli and her unborn daughter were tragically killed this past September.

“Karli’s legacy won’t be defined by the wrong that was done to her, but by the kindness and compassion that radiated from her,” Short wrote on social media.

The foundation will hold its inaugural fundraising gala on Friday, July 15, at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh. The event will be hosted by Penn State football letterman Anthony “Spice” Adams and include appearances from fellow alumni Franco Harris and LaVar Arrington, as well as McKeesport native Mike Logan.
