Thank you to all the golf sponsors 2018
On behalf of the Wireless Zone Foundation For Giving®, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude for your participation in our annual Golf Tournament. With your support, we were able to raise over $54,000 in funds that will benefit local charities and organizations in our local communities.
At this year’s tournament, we gave a warm welcome to a speaker from one of our local grantees; Pam Keough, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish, Connecticut. Make-A-Wish grants wishes to kids with life threatening medical conditions and gives them an amazing experience.
Grant money raised through your generous contributions to our Foundation are key to keeping programs like Connecticut Advocates for Parkinson’s sustainable and attainable to the patrons in need of its services. These inspiring stories are told and repeated many times over across the country and are only possible because of you.
Thank you again for your thoughtfulness, generosity, and continued support. Save the Date for next year’s tournament on June 13th, 2019.

Backpack Giveaway to Local Schools
Wireless Zone® employees delivered 1000 backpacks to two local area schools, the Reggio Magnet School of the Arts CREC and the Maria Sanchez Elementary School. The staff at both schools were so excited. Thanks to the generosity of the Wireless Zone staff, additional items were also donated. This included 500 packages of crayons, wide ruled paper and several boxes of classroom supplies.
The Wireless Zone Foundation For Giving® donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief efforts in Houston. This was in honor of our three stores, their owners, staff and families who were directly impacted by the hurricane.
The Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving® was founded in 2003 after identifying a need and desire to give back to our communities. Today we raise a significant amount of money and support a large number of local charities and causes. We have time-honored relationships with Autism Speaks, Feeding America, Children’s Tumor Foundation, Veterans Leadership Program and Center for Hospice Care.
Our fundraising enables the Foundation to award grants to many charities. The Wireless Zone franchisees and employees nominate the charities each year.
