Literacy Center issues thank you

The following is a letter from the Literacy Center of Milford, reprinted for the benefit of All About Milford readers

On March 8, Walnut Beach was the setting for the 4th Annual Leprechaun Leap to benefit The Literacy Center of Milford. More than $11,000 was raised for our work, and we are grateful to all of our Leapers, young and old and in-between, for braving the cold waters of Long Island Sound to raise such a significant amount of money. Our own tutor trainer, Betty Gerner, raised over $1400!
We thank The Milford Bank for underwriting the event, and our Gold and Platinum Sponsors: Carolyn Auger, Re-Max; Judy Primavera, James Hulley Art Foundation; Mager & Mager; Mallico Construction; Meehan, Meehan & Gavin; Edward Petrucci; Stratton Faxon; Sullivan & Laliberte; R.F. Austin, LLC; BIC Corporation; Edmund Q. Collier, Trial Lawyer, LLC; Law Office of Attorney Laurel Ellson; Tara Galbo, Attorney at Law; Seal-Tite Roofing; Richard Forzano, Independent Financial Consulting; Monica & John Judge; Gerald H. Kahn, Esquire; Kerin & Canty, P.C.; Michael McCabe, Esquire; Mary Treat, Robert Treat Farm; Tom Bataille, Walt’s Home Repair; and Law Offices of Attorney Erica Wikstrom. Community support is essential for our success, and our work could not be done without you.
Last, but certainly NOT least, we thank Kim Freda and Tami Jackson of Milford Bank and Patricia Raffauf, Board member, for their fantastic organization and promotion of the event; the Conines for the use of Daniel Street and for the delicious food for our Leapers and supporters; Jeff Neilson of the Milford Police Department; and Bill Laslett and Tom Conners from the Fire Department for their helpfulness with tables and chairs; the City of Milford for its dedication to and support of non-profit organizations; The Literacy Center volunteers for running registration; and David Raffauf, for always being willing to lend that helping hand. If we have forgotten anyone here, please know that you have our gratitude.
The Literacy Center could not further its cause without your dedication of time and your donation of funds. Thank you for helping us help those in pursuit of literacy.
Joy Stonier, Executive Director
Monica A. Foran, Board President
