Capacity Crowd of 150 TBF Advocates in Connecticut Raise $4,200 For Brain Aneurysm Research

Thank you to all of our supporters in Connecticut for a hosting a wonderful event in support of Brain Aneurysm Research!

A capacity crowd filled Gallo restaurant on October 22 for The Bee Foundation’s first Ridgefield, CT Awareness Event.  The “guest bartender” event attracted over 150 people and raised $4200 for The Bee Foundation (TBF) – double the initial goal set. Raffle items from popular local  venues including Adam Broderick SpaCellar XVHooDoo Brown Barbeque and The Little Pub generated record raffle ticket sales, with two of Jenny Sedney’s Ridgefield High School classmates – Susie Mendizabal and Chris Sexton of HooDoo Brown, along with Dante Calabrese – –among those manning the bar for the two hour event.




Dan Lyon’s guitar playing set the atmosphere for what event-goers deemed a huge success with “a lot of love, and a lot more awareness”  for brain aneurysm awareness and research.  A special thank you to TBF Board of Director, Alison Sedney, and TBF supporter, Mary Smith, as their enthusiasm and dedication contributed to the event’s success!



Holding a fundraiser in your own community is an excellent way to both raise awareness well as celebrate a loved one impacted by brain aneurysms.  The Bee Foundation offers many ways to fundraise for the foundation allowing individual creativity and ownership with event resource support from The Bee Foundation.  Please click here to learn more about fundraising opportunities or contact
