Lara Spencer and Hannah Storm emceed the event and helped ECFF reach their goal of raising the necessary funds for the restoration of the chimes musical mechanism and the creation of the water sport safety center in the tower of the Chimes Building at Tod’s Point. “We cannot thank our amazing event sponsors and generous attendees enough for making the Emily’s Chimes event a huge success” said Emily’s mother and Foundation co-founder Pam Fedorko. “The live and silent auctions alone brought in more than $70,000 towards what we’ve pledged to the Greenwich Point Conservancy.”
Led by the Greenwich Point Conservancy, the restoration of the Chimes Building, including the refurbishing of the rare c1901 “Chimes” bells in the Chimes Tower, is scheduled to begin in Fall of 2022. While the Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation has raised the funds for their contribution to the restoration, this is only the start to the Foundation’s contributions to this project. “We are thrilled that upon completion of this project, the playing of the chimes and the safety of the surrounding waters will be synonymous through Emily’s Chimes,” said Emily’s father and Foundation co-founder Joseph Fedorko. “The Emily’s Chimes event helped us reach our first fundraising goal for the “Emily’s Chimes” restoration project and we will continue to fundraise so that the chimes and safety center’s education efforts continue in perpetuity.”
