During these challenging times, CHS pets and local pet families need your support more than ever. The Bruno’s Way 5K Race and Fitness Walk (dog friendly), on Saturday, October 23, 2021 will fund CHS medical care for pets, Pet Food Pantry, community pet wellness clinics and more.

Some pets at CHS only need spay/neuter procedures, while others suffer with chronic conditions and need complicated surgeries.

CHS cares for pets statewide through three Pet Wellness and Adoption Centers (in Newington, Waterford and Westport), community pet wellness clinics, and the Fox Memorial Clinic, a low-fee, public veterinary clinic in Newington.

As a Sponsor, your company will have the unique opportunity to:

  • Reach thousands of CHS e-supporters and social media followers.
  • Receive high visibility in Central Connecticut as a supporter of Connecticut Humane Society, founded in 1881.
  • Showcase your company’s products/services to our pet loving participants: Families ages 25-55, many with young children, household income $80,000+
  • Improve the lives of pets here in Connecticut

Hello from the Newington Chamber,

We have had to make a truly difficult decision and postponed the Drive-In Movie featuring SING to this Friday, same time and place.  

Our goal is to have a fun filled night for you and your families while raising money for our Chamber and providing scholarships to seniors at Newington High School.  It’s a simple plan but the weather didn’t cooperating with hosting an outdoor event with a balloon pop and movie screen.  

Tickets and food orders are transferable, please just send us the person’s name that will be attending.  (no refunds will be issued.)

Everyone on the NCC Events Committee looks forward to seeing you all Friday, May 14th, to SIIINNNNGGG the night away!

Thursday, June 10, Market Square, Newington CT.

Hello Fellow Chamber Members!

My name is Cathy Rossini Lapierre and besides being a local business owner am
also the mother of a senior at Newington High School. You have heard how much
our high school students have had to adjust in the last year, canceled sports,
theater, band, dances, and memories due to a pandemic. We are organizing the
annual overnight graduation party, which is designed to keep students safe by
providing a drug and alcohol-free celebration immediately after graduation.

The cost of hosting this amazing event for our kids is $30,000 and it is all raised by
parents of seniors. We are excited that this yearly event will resume again this
year with modifications to keep everyone safe due to COVID restrictions. Our
kids, teachers, and staff are overly excited about being able to host this event after
last year’s cancellation.

How can you help?

  • CASH – we can acknowledge any donation over $100 in advertisements in
    the yearbook and local Papers. (we can also provide a 5013© letter).
  • SWAG – for our Project Graduation Golf Tournament, there are 100 goodie
    bags to fill and a raffle at the graduation after-party.
  • BUY a discounted restaurant card for only $20, support 8 local restaurants.
  • SPONSOR the golf tournament or purchase a tee sign.

If you have products or services that could be used for either event, please reach
out to me and chat!

I look forward to partnering up with you to give the graduating class of 2021 a
safe and fun party!
