Once again we are thrilled to invite you to be a part of House of Heroes Connecticut's signature fundraising event of the year, our 5th Annual Hearts & Heroes Fundraiser on Friday, February 14, 2020 at Aria in Prospect, Connecticut.


Our 2020 event will take you back in time to the Roaring 20s! Think Great Gatsby, Art Deco, flapper girls and prohibition except the drinks will be flowing all night long! The event will include an open bar, dinner and dancing, and a premium raffle. If you've supported and joined us in the past, you know that our focus is always on both fundraising for a great cause and fun, and you can once again expect to have the time of your life!

House of Heroes Connecticut's Hearts & Heroes 2020 is the ideal way to show your support of America's heroes with clients, employees, friends or family!


The William J. May III Service Above Self Awards

Bill May was all about honor, and service. The House of Heroes Connecticut Chapter cofounder,

who passed away in December 2016 following a two-year battle with cancer, made a life of serving both his country and his fellow comrades in need through his devotion to the House of Heroes mission. In Bill’s final months, he worked tirelessly in his dual roles as chairman of both House of Heroes National and the Connecticut Chapter to do all he could to expand House of Heroes nationwide impact. One thing Bill knew was that he could not do it alone - fulfillment of the House of Heroes mission was then, and remains today, dependent upon an army of advocates,

volunteers, sponsors and supporters who make our work possible. So it is only fitting that Bill, and his legacy of service, be celebrated by honoring, on an annual basis, those vital supporters who help us keep Bill’s dream alive. House of Heroes Connecticut is proud to introduce this year its

inaugural William J. May III Service Above Self Awards, to be presented annually to a sponsor, contractor & volunteer whose selfless contributions help make our mission possible.

Congratulations to this year’s honorees! Your time, talents and financial support are fitting tributes to Bill May’s legacy, and are helping House of Heroes Connecticut continue to Make a Difference in a Day for deserving Connecticut veterans. Thank you!

Chris Daigle


In recent years, the role that a small but vital group of skilled craftsmen and handyman volunteers have played in House of Heroes Connecticut’s success has become ever more important. Chris Daigle has emerged as one of those highly dependable skilled workers the organization relies so much upon. A Senior Project Manager at North Haven’s HB Communications, licensed electrician and former North Haven firefighter, Chris has spent countless weekends in recent years donning a toolbelt and helping House of Heroes fulfill its mission. Recently appointed to the House of He-roes board of directors, Chris’ dedication to the House of Heroes mission is unquestioned. Thank you Chris Daigle!

Fred Miller


What would a House of Heroes Connecticut project be without the help of Fred Miller? The Hamden native has been an integral part of House of Heroes Connecticut since the group’s founding in 2012, when his father, World War II veteran Fred Miller, was one of the very first military veterans to be served by the organization. The owner of FJ Miller Construction of Hamden, Fred has worked tirelessly and faithfully on some of the most diffi-cult and labor-intensive projects HOHCT has ever taken on, and has been a key asset and right-hand-man to HOHCT President and Project Man-ager Steve Cavanaugh. Fred further serves the organization as a member of its Board of Directors. Thank you Fred Miller!
