Legacy Club

The Test of Time

Throughout the years the Umbrella Club has had many members, friends and supporters who have distinguished themselves by their extraordinary contributions to our mission of helping children and families in need. We are extremely grateful for their generosity and have created a special place in our History by recognizing them as members of our “Legacy Club”. Limited to a select group who have made a significant capital gift of $100,000 to the Club, we honor and thank them for their commitment to our past, present and future endeavors.

Founding & Charter Members

The Cingari Family Foundation

Rocky Cingari

Founding Member

Rocky was a Lifetime Member whose leadership and dedication inspired the Club to reach new heights in raising funds for our mission. He was responsible for creating and starting our third annual fundraising event which enabled us to fulfill substantial financial pledges to the Yale Pediatric Eye Care Center, a life work of Rocky’s; Stamford Hospital’s Pediatric Emergency Department and the Stamford Museum and Nature Center. Due to Rocky’s tireless efforts, the Club achieved a new level of financial commitment to organizations that provide vital health and educational services to children and families in need.
