The Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation (ECFF) is excited to announce a new date and location for their “Emily’s Chimes” event on Saturday, November 6, 2021 in the new state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor waterfront space at The Village in Stamford, CT. Due to the pandemic the ECFF event, which will support the restoration of the historic chimes and Chimes Tower portion of the Greenwich Point Chimes Building, had previously been rescheduled two times. “We are thrilled that our Emily’s Chimes fundraiser will take place this year and that it will be held at an incredible new location right on the water,” said Emily’s mother and Foundation co-founder Pam Fedorko. “We will celebrate with a fun-filled evening of great food and cocktails, DJ, dancing, and a live auction while raising the necessary funds to refurbish the rare c1901 “Chimes” mechanism and bells located in the upper portion of the Chimes Tower and creating a water safety center in the base of the Tower.”
The November 6th “Emily’s Chimes” event will take place from 7:00pm to 11:00pm with ECFF Board Member Gary Dell’Abate as the Emcee, delicious food by On the Marc and a decadent raw bar thanks to the Greenwich Shellfish Commission. The venue, The Village, is located in Stamford’s South End and is a new indoor/outdoor premium waterfront campus designed to serve the needs of entrepreneurs and creators in realms like art, entertainment, tech, music, health, fitness, food, finance, the digital/influencer worlds and more. With world-class food and beverage offerings and views overlooking the marina, the Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation is excited to host “Emily’s Chimes” at this unique private event venue. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available on the ECFF website: https://emsway.org/emilys-chimes/.
The Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation has partnered with the Greenwich Point Conservancy to provide financial and planning support for the restoration of the chimes and tower portion of the beautiful and historic “Chimes Building” (c1896) at Greenwich Point. The contribution by the Foundation will be used for refurbishing the rare c1901 “Chimes” mechanism and bells, which are located in the upper portion of the Chimes tower, and for creating a water safety center in the base of the tower. The overall restoration project for the Chimes Building is being led by the Greenwich Point Conservancy, in coordination with the Town of Greenwich. The project is slated to commence following completion of the overall facility design and receipt of all necessary Town approvals, and following the restoration the building and facilities there will be named in honor of Greenwich Point Conservancy founding board member, the late Daniel J. Donahue. Following the restoration of the musical chimes mechanism and bells, they will be known as “Emily’s Chimes”, dedicated to the life and memory of Emily.
The Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation provides funding to advance education, advocacy and awareness of boating and water sports safety for adults and children, throughout Connecticut and nationwide. This includes awareness of both state and local rules and regulations, how to obtain necessary certifications, knowledge of each body of water, and the vessel mechanics. Proper use of life jackets, as well as ongoing safety education for boat drivers, navigators and passengers are also key. The foundation was created by Pamela and Joseph Fedorko to honor the life of their 16-year old daughter Emily, who tragically lost her life in 2014, during a water tubing accident on Long Island Sound.
