Connecticut Wealth Management also hosted its annual
food drive throughout the month of November. As part of
its commitment to the local community, employees collect-
ed nonperishable food items, which were donated to the
Farmington Food Pantry.
Pictured with nonperishable food donations are Connecticut Wealth Man-
agement representatives (from left) Ryan Tuttle, Krystal Chambers, Kevin

RSM US Connecticut employees, clients, and friends
raised $55,960 for Make-a-Wish Connecticut through the
firm's Birdies Fore Love office competition, leading up to
the 2015 RSM Classic. Make-a-Wish grants the wishes of
children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Birdies Fore Love is a program run by the Davis Love
Foundation to raise money for charities, such as Make-
a-Wish, that support children and families. Fundraising
activities are entirely employee-run.
"The incredible support we've seen from our friends at
RSM comes at a significant time in our chapter's history as
we celebrate our 30th anniversary in 2016," shared Pam
Keough, president and chief executive office for Make-a-
Wish Connecticut. "More than 300 Connecticut children are
diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition each
year, and our vision is to grant the wish of every eligible
child. It is thanks to RSM and their generous support that
we are able to reach more children each year and make
their wishes come true."
RSM employees Carolyn Sierra, Nicholas Mensah, Brian DiPaola, and
Tony Ceci were recently joined in their Stamford office by Make-a-Wish
Connecticut leaders Pam Keough, president and chief executive officer,
and Tara Navara, chief development officer (not pictured), along with nine-
year-old wish recipient Connor, who accepted RSM's donation of $55,960
on behalf of the charitable organization.
