Harry Hayman IV was born in Washington DC to his parents, Robin and Harry III. With his father being an international banker, young Harry soon became accustomed to traveling the world extensively, moving from Maryland to Virginia to New Jersey to Venezuela to Mexico to London to Germany to New York City and many places in between.
Many of Harry Hayman’s contributions are to causes and charities that he has a personal connection to and feels strongly about. For instance, after seeing the effects of cancer on both friends and family members at early ages, he joined the advisory board for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. As a board member, he has had a hand in planning the annual Lemon Ball since its inaugural year and has helped to bring in thousands of dollars in charitable donations toward research to cure childhood cancer. It is among his favorite charities because of its mission and the personal connection he has with the cause.
Harry Hayman has also had a role in starting two Philadelphia non-profits, both of which have very much taken off since their inception: the Feed Philly Coalition, and the Philadelphia Jazz Experience.
