Foundation to Continue Denise D’Ascenzo’s Work

Denise used to tell me someday she wanted to run a foundation that would do noble work and help others. Her husband Wayne and daughter Kathryn created the Denise D’Ascenzo Foundation to carry on her legacy and they have done an amazing job. They put together a great board of directors, with a few more to be added, and I am honored to be the president.

Here are the Denise Foundation board members:

Susan Bysiewicz

Kathryn Cooke

Wayne Cooke

Len Fasano

Tim Herbst

Dennis House

Duby McDowell

Dana Neves

Phil Quinn

Todd Sloan

Kara Sundlun

Laura Soll

The foundation got off to a great start earlier this year, but then the pandemic came and postponed any events we were thinking of having. Nevertheless, later in the year we donated $5000 to the Hartford Healthcare COVID-19 fund, and also gave checks to the Connecticut Food Bank, Foodshare and more recently, Mary’s Place.

We could not have done it without your generosity. Thank you!

If you can, we welcome you to support the Denise D’Ascenzo Foundation here:
