CLASP Spring Dinner Dance
On June 7th we once again danced the night away at our annual Spring DInner Dance. This evening is always one of the best nights for all involved! Chatham Manor in Norwalk does an amzing job hosting it, and couldn't be more generous in their keeping their fees affordable!
See you at the 9th Annual Taste of Westport!
Benefitting CLASP Homes, last year's event featured 16 area restaurants, and 10 beer, wine and liquor distributers, offering samples of their fare. The event returned to the Westport Inn after rennovations - the space has been transformed into an elegant venue. Attendees navigated from table to table, tasting finger foods, noshing on plates of pasta, checking out aucion items, and keeping a beat with live music. Mark your calendar for May 2, 2013 and contact Robin at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the 2013 committee.
Celebrating Memorial Day and CLASP's 30th Birthday!
Being pulled by a beautiful vintage, canary yellow pick-up, was the CLASP 30th Birthday Cake/Float. Giving out flags and pencils, the participants and staff from CLASP showed our pride for country, and for our own milestone.
The Eighth Annual CLASP Fashion Show
The beautiful women served by CLASP once again graced the runway at the Westport Woman's Club. They wore stylish clothes from Eileen Fisher, one our best supporters. The guests were astonished by the beauty of the decor. This is one event that leaves us all feeling very proud to be a part of CLASP.
CLASP Homes Celebrated their 30th Anniversary with Evening of Laughter!
Comedians Jon Fisch, Moody McCarthy and surprise guest Alexandra McHale played to a packed house and provided a wonderful evening of entertainment for all. The Fairfield Theatre Company proved to be an intimate and inviting venue while the Brasserie and 55 Restaurant & Wine Bar generously provided delightful refreshments for all in the newly renovated gallery space.
The CLASP family was moved once again, by what can be accomplished when communities come
together for a common cause. Thanks to all our community partners!
In December, Splash Car Wash of Norwalk donated a portion of its holiday sales to CLASP. Splash owner, Mark Curtis has been not only a friend to CLASP for many years, but also supports many other local nonprofits. Mark truly knows the spirit of the holiday season.
Barnes and Noble is the Best!
Barnes & Noble of Westport is a great example of corporate businesses supporting local nonprofits.
Each year at holiday time, Barnes & Noble gives local nonprofits the opportunity to staff their gift
wrapping tables and to keep 100% of the wrapping donations for their organizations. CLASP couldn’t
be more pleased to have them as a community partner.

What a way to end the summer...Our very own Roy threw out the first pitch at the Bridgeport Bluefish in August.Everyone cheered him on as CLASP good friend & photographer, John Videler recorded it for posterity.Thank you John!
Thank you Northern Trust!
Our Weston Road group home was happy to host the folks from Northern Trust as they gave us a day of community service. Not only did they plant some gorgeous flowers, they made some new friends!
Please see the nicest note we got from Nancy Borchetta, and the folks at Northern Trust!!
I can speak for every partner from Northern Trust who was part of that project and I have to say we got more out of that day than we gave! I hope to make this an annual event for CLASP Homes as part of Northern Trust's volunteer efforts. I also think our partners have a pretty good "green thumb" even if we are just bankers!!
