The Ice Bucket Challenge, September 2014
In September of 2014 The Umbrella Club of Stamford and Stamford Hospital participated in “The Ice Bucket Challenge”, raising money for ALS Research. Chris Riendeau of Stamford Hospital challenged the Umbrella Club to match whatever the individual members contributed and if the club did, the Hospital would match that, amounting to a 3-1 return.We’re projecting donations to reach the 10K mark.

Helping a Stamford Family, February 8, 2012
When the Umbrella Club, a non-profit organization, heard the story of a 13-year-old boy who was born blind and without a nose, they unanimously decided to sponsor the family. At a fundraiser Wednesday night, February 8th, 2012, the family was honored and more money was raised for the mission of the club (helping children in need) with a raffle. Thirteen-year-old Jeffrey even chose the winning tickets for various prizes including a 2012 Ford Mustang. All 999 tickets at $100 a piece were sold out for the cause.
