Moffly’s awards ceremony moved to Nov. 29

As a result of Superstorm Sandy’s effect on the state, Moffly Media has postponed its fifth annual Light a Fire Awards until Thursday, Nov. 29 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

The unique event, aimed at celebrating the community’s non-profit and philanthropic leaders, will be held at Greenwich Academy’s Massey Theater and will be catered by Marcia Selden Catering and Event Planning. This year’s event will be sponsored by Wells Fargo Advisors, George N. Venizelos Managing Director-Investments and Abbey Tent. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Fairfield County Community Foundation.

Outstanding individuals and organizations from across lower Fairfield County will be honored during the awards presentation which will be preceded by cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

Light a Fire will salute those who have “gone beyond the ordinary to extraordinary in giving back to the community.” From philanthropists and volunteers to organizations helping families, children and the community, the honorees are a called a “unique group” by Moffly Media. Representatives from the area’s non-profit organizations, philanthropists, volunteers, corporate donors, and board members, along with local dignitaries, VIPs and government officials will all be in attendance.
