FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. --The Mid-Fairfield County Association of Realtors is sponsoring a fundraiser called Cocktails for a Cause at Fat Cat Pie Co. from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Fat Cat Pie Co. is located at 3 Wall St. in Norwalk. The event will include drinks (wine, beer, soda), appetizers, pizza and prizes. The event is open to the public. The cost is $40 per person. Guests can register online.
As part of the statewide REALTORS Reach Out program, the group has chosen to support CLASP Homes. CLASP is a not-for-profit agency supporting adults with autism and related developmental disabilities in group homes and apartment settings. CLASP is in great need of five generators for their group homes.
The group’s Giving Back Committee, co-chaired by Deb Alderson and Mary Ann Laurita, set a goal of obtaining the generators for CLASP Homes. Cannondale Generators in Wilton, the Realty Seven Foundation, and Women’s Council of Realtors in Connecticut (Greater Waterbury Chapter, Southern Fairfield County Chapter, Greater Danbury Chapter and the Connecticut State Board) each donated a generator.
To raise money for the last two generators and their installation, the Giving Back Committee decided to throw a party. The event is sponsored by Manny Gomes of Norcom Mortgage, Cristina Conti of Hi Ho Petroleum, Paul Lebowitz of Westport Mortgage, and J Reilly of The Reilly Group.
In addition to Alderson and Laurita, the Giving Back Committee members are Patrick Russo, Nancy Manby, Elizabeth Kamar, Charlotte Cotton, MFCAR President Cheryl Scott Daniels and MFCAR Executive Officer Carol Heins.
