Dear Friends and Supporters,
We are pleased to report that 2013 was an exceptional year in
support of SARAH participants. In a difficult economy, when many
non-profits are struggling with fundraising, SARAH donors and
contributors stepped-up their giving. Contributions from individuals,
SARAH events and major gifts exceeded all of our expectations.
In early 2013, a large stock gift was made to the SARAH Foundation
from an anonymous SARAH benefactor. This unanticipated
donation funded several needed projects: a site plan for SARAH,
Inc. Enrichment Center, start-up resources for Tuxis Harbor and
emergency housing funds for SARAH SENECA participants.
We also said good-bye to our good friends, Chet and Angelica
Bentley. However, their memory endures with their generous
bequest to the SARAH Endowment Fund. This gift was a huge
boost to both the SARAH Endowment Fund and the distributions
to SARAH service agencies.
The SARAH Foundation is extremely proud of two beautiful and
touching videos that were produced by Steve DePino. The “Making
Independence Video” depicts a day in the life of several individuals
who are supported by SARAH. The “Thank You Video” features a
variety of thank you messages from SARAH participants. Both of
these videos were showcased at the SARAH Gala and are posted
on our website.
The SARAH Foundation is responsible for raising funds, managing
the investments and coordinating all donations with the wishes of
the donors and the mission of the SARAH agencies. We are extremely
grateful to you and the hundreds of individuals and businesses that
support us in our mission to make independence possible.

“Everyone who knows Mark got together, because of
his enthusiasm, commitment, and sportsmanship…
he was a natural choice.”
—Debbie Horne, SOCT Communications Director
Mark Hutchinson, a SARAH Special Olympics athlete,
has been participating in the games for more than
25 years. This year, he became the first-ever recipient
of the Bud Meyers award at the 2014 Connecticut
Special Olympics Winter Games.
Hutchinson has been competing in the winter games
for as long as Bud Meyers has been making snow for
the athletes. For 20 years, Meyers has crafted perfect
conditions for the winter games venue in Simsbury.
Harold, Mark’s father and Team SARAH coach, said
his son is very competitive. “He has a ritual. When
he gets through each skiing race, I’ll go over and get
his skis and he’ll say be careful they’re hot – they’re
smoking, they’re smoking. He feels like he melts the
snow, he goes so fast.”
John Carpenter was the first million dollar winner in the Who
Wants to be a Millionaire? Show. In the Celebrity Tournament,
John won $250,000 – half of which was donated to the SARAH
Unbeknownst to John, the publicity surrounding the TV show
would attract another gift.
Agnes was an avid Who Wants to be a Millionaire? fan. As she
watched John win $125,000 for SARAH, she contemplated “If
SARAH is important to John Carpenter; they must do great things
for people with disabilities.”
Agnes and her attorney arranged a generous bequest to be made
to the SARAH Endowment Fund. Several years later, Agnes passed
and her legacy gift to SARAH is helping to enrich the lives of SARAH
participants now and for years to come.
“I chose SARAH because I wanted to make sure whatever
money I won would make a real difference in people’s lives.”
—John Carpenter
John and Agnes
“We keep them moving. They have a monthly calendar
with something going on almost every day.”
—Jill, SARAH staff
Mike, Stuart, Mark and Herb are four busy, productive
young men. Mike has a staff person for exercise and
exploring the community. Stuart works at the Coast
Guard Academy. Mark is part of a SARAH cleaning crew
working at local businesses. Herb attends reading,
computer classes and volunteers.
Mike, Stuart and Herb live in a SARAH supported home in
Clinton. Mark lives in an in-law apartment attached to his
parent’s home in Guilford.
All are involved in SARAH recreation programs such as
Special Olympics, exercise classes, trips and volunteering.
This summer they participated in Special Olympics
softball, Fitness Club, and volunteered at the SARAH Golf
Classic. Stuart is running the 5K with the SARAH Team at
the NU Hartford Marathon this fall.
Life is good for Mike, Stuart, Mark and Herb.
Mike Stuart Mark
“Chris was a kind person, a pure spirit. I was so
happy that Chris was a part of SARAH. They were so
nice to him and he was so loved by his family.”
—Loretta, Chris’s mom
Joseph Lagana, Sr. opened the Liberty Lagana store
in Meriden, Conncticut in 1934. Over the years, their
products gradually evolved from automotive and
hardware goods to furniture and electronics. Liberty
Lagana became a 3rd generation business in 2003 as
Matthew Lagana joined the company full-time and his
father, Joseph, retired.
Each year the Liberty Lagana store and the Lagana family
make a generous donation to SARAH in loving memory
of their nephew, Christopher Democh. Chris was a typical
young man who liked to go crabbing and watch WWE
Wrestling. He loved all animals and had a dog named
“Guilford,” however; he was born with a genetic disorder
known as Prader-Willis Syndrome. Chris graduated
from Old Saybrook high school in 2002 and worked
at Applicare in Branford with help from a SARAH work
program. Sadly, he passed away in 2003 at the age of 22.
“For over 50 years, SARAH has been a
model for our nation in advocating for
social acceptance, equal rights and
expansion of opportunities for people
with disabilities. SARAH participants
are justifiably proud of who they are and
what they have accomplished, and they
teach us all that every single person has a
contribution to make.”
—Ted Kennedy, Jr.
“I feel happy about myself to sing in front
of others. It was fun to perform.”
—Karen, SARAH participant
“It was fun and I felt really comfortable.
I was happy and had a good time. It was
—Irene, SARAH participant
Gala 2014
Stephen Holthausen, a quiet and humble humanitarian, was involved
with SARAH for over 30 years. Following his term as a SARAH board
member from 1981 to 1984, Stephen continued to give to and
volunteer his time to the organization, including, but not limited to
the SARAH Gala. Stephen and his partner, Sandra Reid, were fixtures
at the annual festivities, as he was a faithful auction donor of a
variety of sports memorabilia items.
Following Stephen’s unexpected and sudden passing in June 2012,
his children, Gretchen Holthausen of Guilford, CT and Christian
Holthausen of Paris, France, contacted the SARAH Foundation to
continue their father’s legacy. To honor their beloved father and
his lifelong passion for SARAH, they donated several auction items
from their father’s sports collection to both the 2013 and 2014
SARAH Galas. Accompanied by her aunt, Linda McGrady and on
behalf of her and her brother, Gretchen has attended both Galas
since Stephen’s passing and has been inspired by the incredible
participants, parents, and community of SARAH.
In the fall of 2014, Gretchen enthusiastically joined the SARAH, Inc.
Board of Directors. She is proud to continue the Holthausen family’s
patronage of SARAH.

The SARAH Endowment Fund:
A Permanent Legacy
The SARAH Foundation’s Endowment Fund contributes
to the fulfillment of the SARAH mission by providing
enduring support for the SARAH family of agencies.
Unlike any other source of support, the Endowment
Fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding
for SARAH. The Foundation’s fundraising efforts,
together with donor planned giving, provides assets
that can be invested for long term growth. Each year,
a portion of the total value of the Endowment is paid
out to support the SARAH mission, and any earnings
in excess of these distributions are used to build the
Endowment’s value. The Endowment is managed
for the long-term to strike a balance between the
competing demands of funding current operations
and preserving long term access to resources to fund
future operations. When you make a contribution to the
Endowment Fund, you create a permanent legacy of
support for SARAH.
