Our mission and impact: Ben's Lighthouse was founded in honor of 6 year old Ben Wheeler, full of energy, love and light (and a dash of mischief), who lost his life at Sandy Hook School on December 14, 2012. Ben's Lighthouse allows the light of Ben to continue to shine by providing free programs that connect every child. Through mentorships that promote healing and coping, community events that build and strengthen community, and outreach opportunities that empower and inform, the youth of Newtown connect to their own light and let it shine. We are brighter together.
Our fundraising goal: Please visit our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/benslighthouse/ to see what we've been up to and how your generous donation directly impacts our youth, community and beyond. Over the past few years, Ben's Lighthouse has been actively giving back in communities throughout Fairfield and New Haven counties. Our youth volunteers have served with Homes for the Brave (Bridgeport), Operation Hope (Fairfield), CT Food Bank (Wallingford/ Fairfield) and the Fayerweather Lighthouse (Bridgeport), in addition to many other projects locally and nationally. #HelpingisHealing. Thank you for your support.
Ben's Lighthouse extends their gratitude to the Faxon Law Group and the Fairfield Fightfighters for making this event possible.
