May 12, 2016 – Lafrance Hospitality Company is the co-sponsor for the Tom Rush concert at Westport River’s Vineyard on Saturday, July 16, celebrating the Westport River Watershed Alliance’s (WRWA) 40th Anniversary. The celebration honors the WRWA and their efforts in protecting, sustaining, and celebrating the Westport River and its watershed since 1976.
Sponsoring the event is a natural fit for Lafrance Hospitality Company, who recently celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2015. With familial roots and a core of their business units in Westport, Lafrance Hospitality Company understands the importance of being good stewards and the impact of organizations such as WRWA who strive to protect and conserve the natural resources of the Westport River and its watershed.
“We are grateful to have the opportunity to support a local organization who works so hard to protect and advocate for the conservation of natural resources in our area, and who serves as a role model for other organizations to do the same,” says Richard Lafrance, President/CEO, Lafrance Hospitality Company. “We support Westport Rivers Watershed Alliance either through event sponsorships or donating food for their annual River Day and Summer Gala.”
