Annual Norwalk fundraiser to help Sandy victims
December 8, 2012 by James
Mayor Moccia has announced that the proceeds from the 2013 Mayor’s Ball will be going to victims of hurricane Sandy, with many local residents still recovering.
The Mayor’s Ball is an event which takes place each year, with all proceeds being donated to a deserving local charity. The 2013 event will see all money raised be given to the Fairfield County Community Foundation, for its Sandy Relief Fund.
Announcing the news at the end of November, Moccia said:
“This storm—through wind, rain and flooding—produced damage from which many families are simply unable to recover without some help from their neighbors.”
Richard Moccia went on to say:
“It is in times like this that the Fairfield County Community Foundation can be relied upon to assist our neighbors in need and I am sincerely grateful that, through the Foundation, Norwalk families who were overwhelmed by the storm will receive some assistance.”
All across the county, the hurricane has devastated lives, with the relief fund helping as many folks as it can. However, all funds raised from the Norwalk ball will be infused directly to efforts here.
Tables of 10 can be purchased, making the event a great way to start the networking in the New Year, so ensuring all business card printing needs are taken care of in good time is a good idea. Businesses can also market themselves well by donating a prize for the Silent Auction.
The 2013 Mayor’s Ball will take place at the Continental Manor on Friday, January 25, starting at 7.00 pm, with tickets now on sale.
