Borgida & Company, P.C. raised $3,168 while participating in the Relay for Life of East Central Connecticut. 

The BORGIDA CARES! team participated in the American Cancer Society's (ACS) Daffodil Days and sold luminarias – homemade paper lanterns decorated with the names of loved ones. Each luminaria is in honor or remembrance of a life touched by cancer, accompanied by a moment of silence for those lost. The team also held a “Toast for a Cure” fundraising event at a local brewery, Labyrinth Brewing Company in Manchester.

Team BORGIDA CARES! was one of the thirty-four teams participating in this year's Relay for Life of East Central Connecticut held at Manchester Community College on June 3-4, 2022. Relay for Life events have been raising donations all over country for ACS since 1986. The East Central Connecticut event raised more than $111,000. Fundraising continues through August 31, 2022. Interested parties may donate by going to Proceeds help fund the many programs run by the American Cancer Society.

Thomas Scanlon, president of Borgida & Company, said “Many thanks to our incredible clients, family and friends who donated to team BORGIDA CARES! They always step up when it comes to supporting the community.”
