ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT THESE LOCAL, NON-PROFIT CHILDRENS ORGANIZATIONS:
Molly Ann Tango
The Molly Ann Tango Memorial Foundation is dedicated to enriching the lives of children with special needs and their families. The Foundation helps finance the purchase of much-needed medical equipment and services when insurance is exhausted and other social programs are not available. In addition to financial support, the Foundation helps families navigate the medical and social communities to find the products and services that will specifically meet their needs.
Covenant Preparatory School of Hartford
Covenant Preparatory School opened in 2008 in order to meet the educational needs of under-served families. The school partners with students, families, staff and volunteers to form a pact, or covenant, to fulfill the mission of the school. Parents are an active part of the school. Funding for the school comes from individual donors, foundations, corporate sponsorships and grants. Covenant Prep provides young men from underserved communities the foundation required to successfully pursue higher education, to develop the strength of their character and to inspire them to live with integrity as leaders committed to their communities
The Miracle League
In 2012 a seed was planted in the special needs community when The Miracle League of CT opened the very first fully accessible baseball field in New England. 30 players including Johnny Moran, played baseball on that field the first year. The program now draws over 160 players each year from all over the state. What has blossomed beyond baseball has been incredible.
Today, Miracle League of CT programs include Everybody Dance Now, iCan Bike, We’re Putting on a Show, Super Sports Saturdays, MLCT Adapted Swim Lessons, Sibshops, and many others, all adapted to meet the unique needs of the children and families that they serve.
In 2022 The Miracle League of CT will celebrate 10 years of making a difference. By removing the barriers that prevent children with special needs from participating in activities we all take for granted for typically developing children, the Miracle League of CT advocates for their motto – “Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play.”
CLOVER CLUB CHARITY OF 2023
Friends of Feeney
The mission of Friends of Feeney is to help children and families who need assistance after heartbreak and tragedy. Our efforts and events are dedicated to fundraising, specifically, for those in need. Our motto is #BeAGoodFriend. Some examples might be: hold the door for someone, give a compliment, pick up trash that is not yours and be charitable!
Friends of Feeney is a grassroots, West Hartford based nonprofit organization started by local resident and teacher, Eric Feeney. Eric has dedicated the past 20+ years of his life to educating children and helping families. This is something that he is passionate about and wants to continue inside and outside of the classroom. During his teaching career, Eric has experienced so much joy. And sadly, he has also witnessed heartbreak and tragedy which inspired him to get more involved in the community.
With much support, Eric established a group called “Friends of Feeney” to walk in the Park Road Parade in West Hartford. As of today, Friends of Feeney has raised over $85,000 and helped 26 families in need. Eric accepts the responsibility for being the vessel that brings the community together to support, care for, and respond to children and families in heartbreaking situations."
