Nicholas Festival in New Fairfield honors Nicholas Tersigni & supports all children with special needs

You are invited to participate in the 7th annual “Nicholas’s Festival” honoring Nicholas Tersigni, on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Consolidated School located at 12 Gillotti Road New Fairfield CT. Nicholas passed away in 2009 at the tender age of three after suffering from Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). 

"This beautiful day is our way of not only remembering Nicholas, but to also raise money to benefit countless children with special needs in support of living a healthy life," his parents, New Fairfield residents, Lara and Angel Tersigni explain.

Nicholas' parents describe their child as a wonder-filled boy with a gentle heart, brought joy to everyone around him.  "He spoke only a few words, yet, he truly had no need for words at all. He spoke his own language. His bright eyes spoke volumes. With his unconditional love, he would take you by the hand and show you better than any words could ever tell. Nicholas’ love overflowed," they say.

According to the Tersigni family, this year, in addition to Prader-Willi Syndrome, your donations will also support Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of New York – Presbyterian, Columbia University Medical Center and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
