Fairfield couples co-chair AmeriCares Airlift Benefit

Two Fairfield couples, Roberta and Jim Conroy and Amanda and Bryan Hanson, co-chaired the AmeriCares Airlift Benefit on October 3, 2015, which raised a record $2.6 million for the emergency response and global health organization.

AmeriCares Ambassador Tony Goldwyn was the special guest and Erica Hill, co-anchor of Weekend TODAY and national correspondent for NBC News, served as Master of Ceremonies. The Conroys and Hansons co-chaired along with Julie and Bas NieuweWeme of Rowayton.

More than 800 guests attended the 28th annual AmeriCares Airlift Benefit at the J.P. Morgan Chase Hangar at Westchester County Airport presented by lead sponsor Medtronic. The evening culminated with 89 guests boarding a plane to see the clinics, hospitals and community health programs AmeriCares supports in Guatemala. The whirlwind 24-hour trip gave supporters an up-close look at the impact AmeriCares is making with its health programs in underserved communities around the world.
