SHELTON, Conn. — The Kennedy Center got a surprise this holiday season — a $5,000 donation from Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti.

Lauretti made the donation through proceeds from his annual Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament.

“We want to personally thank Mayor Lauretti and the supporters of his golf tournament for their generous donation to The Kennedy Center,” said Martin Schwartz, president and CEO of the Trumbull-based organization that supports people with special needs.

“This substantial contribution has been earmarked for general operating expenses, which will benefit the 2,000 people with disabilities we serve throughout the region.”

Lauretti said he has been involved with The Kennedy Center for decades.

“In fact, several years ago, I hired an outstanding Kennedy Center worker in my office at City Hall,” he said. “I am honored to provide this worthwhile organization with a $5,000 donation from the Mayor’s Golf Tournament, so they can continue helping others.”
