County Assemblies celebrates 77 years of student ambassdor giving

The County Assemblies of Fairfield County is celebrating its 77th year of raising funds for local charitable organizations serving children and teens in the county and promoting inter-town friendships amongst the high school students that participate in County Assemblies’ Charity Balls this month.

The County Assemblies was begun in 1938 by Westporter, Mrs. Willem C. Schilthius and continues today with the Charity Balls taking place this month at the Stamford Marriott. Public high school juniors and seniors from Fairfield, Weston, Westport and Wilton will be attending this year in record numbers which will enable the County Assemblies to donate funds to organizations from across Fairfield County.

Student ambassadors from each of the five high schools: Fairfield Ludlowe, Fairfield Warde, Weston, Staples and Wilton select the “Student Ambassador Charities” they wish to support with a portion of the net proceeds from the Charity Balls. For the two Fairfield high schools, Fairfield Ludlowe High School will be supporting Operation Hope and Fairfield Warde High School has decided to split their proceeds with the High School Scholarship Foundation of Fairfield and Warde’s own, “RAAFT,” which stands for “Raising Abuse Awareness for Teens at FWHS.” By serving as student ambassadors, the student reps are able to uphold the County Assemblies’ mission of focusing on helping youth in their own community and philanthropy.
