Tilcon Connecticut Supports The Hospital of Central Connecticut Cancer Center
Tilcon Connecticut is proud to donate $50,000 dollars on behalf of its employees to the Hospital of Central Connecticut’s new cancer center, located on the New Britain/Plainville town line. The facility will provide innovative, sophisticated, and dedicated cancer treatment at a centralized center to serve the local community. The hospital is being built on several acres of land next to Interstate 84 and will offer ease of access to patients who might normally travel longer distances. In appreciation of this gift, the main entrance patio garden will be named for Tilcon Connecticut’s employees. The facility is expected to open in early 2015.

Tilcon Connecticut races to fight breast cancer
On May 11, Team Tilcon Connecticut participated in the 2013 CT Race in the Park. This annual event at Walnut Hill Park in New Britain, Conn., raises funds for the fight against breast cancer.
Linda Rocco, safety associate with Tilcon Connecticut, has led Team Tilcon since 2009. She, 20 other team members and 18 sponsors (who did not run or walk but supported the effort with donations) gathered donations that totaled $1,212 before this year’s race.
“This event is for a very important cause and is a way to help in some small way to find a cure for breast cancer locally. All the money raised stays in Connecticut and is used for research and awareness to find a cure,” Rocco said.
Tilcon Connecticut also showed its support for the cause with a themed ready-mix truck bearing a pink ribbon and the message “pouring our hearts out for the cure” — the same message printed on Team Tilcon Connecticut’s race T-shirts.
“To be assigned this truck is a feeling that is very special,” driver Jon Spitz said.

Dear Mr. Colby:
I am writing to exress our sincere gratitude for Tilcon’s sponsorship of our 2013 Vintage Motorcar Festival. Your chartibale donation helps Klingberg Family Centers extend hope and healing to childern and families facing problems related to abuse, neglect, domestic violence, and behavioral health issues. We are pleased to report that 97 business and corporations contrtibuted to the sucess of this year’s event and allowed us to reach our fundraising goal. Thank you helping ot make this possible.
We were blessed with both a spectacular day on June 15th and hundreds of gorgeous antique and classic vehicles. This year’s show, in particular, placed an emphasis upon the importance of dads in celebration of Father’s Day. It is estimated that nearly 5,000 persons visited our campus, and many remarked about the “warm, family atmosphere” they experienced. Everyone had a wonderful time enjoying the music, dancers, and children’s activities and viewing all of the cars. Our Grand Marshals, Wayne Carini of Velocity’s “Chasing Classic Cars” and his dad Bob, were on hand to meet many devoted fans. The only “problem” we seemed to have is that people didn’t want to leave when the show was over!
Enclosed is copy of our 2013 proram book. The artwork featured on the back cover listing our sponsors was published in The Herald on Father’s Day in gratutude for your support.
We trust that your association with this fine, family-oriented event will be held in high regard by members of the community. Your generosity speaks volumes and exemplifies the values your company empbraces. It is our sincere hope that you will continue to partner wiht Klingberg Family Centers to impact the lives of children and their families.
