Out of an abundance of caution, the Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation (ECFF) has decided to cancel the upcoming Emily’s Chimes event on Friday, April 4. The good news is that they have already rescheduled Emily’s Chimes for Friday, October 23, from 7 to 11 p.m. at The Arch Street Teen Center.
The event, which will benefit the “Emily’s Chimes” restoration project at Tod’s Point, will be emceed by ECFF board member, Gary Dell’Abate. Guests will enjoy delicious food by OntheMarc catering, specialty cocktails sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, a Raw Bar provided by the Greenwich Shellfish Commission, music, dancing and an incredible line-up of silent and live auction items. Attendees are encouraged to wear casual attire, with a splash of BLUE. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available online at: emsway.org/emilys-chimes
The “Emily’s Chimes” event will support the organization’s pledge to the Greenwich Point Conservancy to help fund the restoration of the Chimes Tower at Greenwich Point, built in 1901 as part of the historic Chimes Building, overlooking the waters of the Long Island Sound on Tod’s Point. Through the restoration project, the physical chimes and their intricate mechanisms will be restored. Upon completion, the chimes will be named “Emily’s Chimes” to honor the life of 16-year old Greenwich High Schooler Emily Fedorko, who tragically lost her life in 2014, during a water tubing accident on Long Island Sound.
In addition to the chimes, a new Water Safety Center will be established inside the building to further the Foundation’s mission to educate the community about the importance of water and boating safety.
