Thank you to some of our generous donors and sponsors
"A very special Thank You to all of Connecticut's Republican and Democratic Legislators, their staffs, legislative aides, press aides, research teams, and the Capitol Police for their recent donatation."
Connecticut State Representatives Lezlye Zupkus, 89th House District, Deputy Leader At-Large in the House Republican Office, and Representative Michael Quinn, 82nd House District, Assistant Majority Leader, in the House Democrat Office, recently spearheaded a fund-raising drive to support the CT National Guard Foundation, Inc. (CTNGFI). Donations were collected from both sides of the political aisle. All Republican and Democratic Legislators, their staffs, legislative aides, press aides, research teams, and the Capitol Police, donated.
This is not the first year that the Legislative Body has held this fund-raising event. Due to everyone’s hard work and generosity, a record amount of money was raised this year. On Monday, June 5th, a check in the amount of $4,270.00 was presented to members of the CT National Guard Foundation, Inc. All funds raised will go directly to support the 2023 Operation ELF Holiday Party for family members of deployed service members. Operation ELF is open to all families of deployed service members from any branch of service, located in Connecticut.

The Connecticut National Guard Foundation, Inc is fortunate to be supported by so many corporate, private and individual donors. Two recent donations - one from MSgt Roger Beaudoin of the Connectict Air National Guard and the other from Ilia O'Hearn and Raytheon, Pratt & Whitney Division, are sincerely appreciated. Were it not for such dedicated sponsors, the CTNGFI could not accomplish it's mission of helping service members and their families who are experiencing financial hardships.
MSgt Roger Beaudoin of the Connecticut Air National Guard, recently made a $10,000 donation to the Connecticut National Guard Foundation, Inc. (CTNGFI). We are incredibly grateful to him for his generosity and desire to help his fellow service members and their families, who are struggling financially.

Our sincere thanks and appreciation goes out to Ilia O'Hearn and the Pratt & Whitney Division of Raytheon Technologies for their very generous donation of $10,000 to the Connecticut National Guard Foundation, Inc. We are very fortunate to have the support of so many corporate sponsors, like Pratt & Whitney, who give selflessly to our cause.
For twenty years our mission has been to provide financial assistance to service members and their families who are experiencing financial hardship. We could not do this work without the help and support of our hundreds of sponsors and contributors. To all of you goes our most heartfelt thanks and appreciation.
