Today we welcomed Joe LoPresti and John Corraro from Barnum Financial Group who visited our office and presented a generous donation for Arthur C Luf Children’s Burn Camp. Thank you to the Foundation For Life Inc. for investing in our mission!
It’s all smiles as Westport Firefighters Charitable Foundation (WUFCF) President Ted Crawford presents a check to the CT Burns Care Foundation. The donation was made possible from the Westport Firefighters Annual Golf Tournament held in May of this year. The annual golf tournament is one of WUFCF’s annual fundraisers, the proceeds of which are distributed amongst various charities in the local area, including the CT Burns Care Foundation. This year almost 100 golfers participated in the tournament which was held at The Links at Longshore.
