Klaff’s, a home design center headquartered in Norwalk, donated $19,954, the proceeds from the golf event. It is one of the largest corporate gifts the museum has received this year, according to a museum press release.

“We are proud to support this National Historic Landmark and its mission,” said Joe Passero, Klaff’s chairman and chief operating officer and museum trustee. “The Mansion enriches the community and the region through outstanding cultural and educational programs, while championing a 19th century iconic building that has become for so many a treasured destination.”

“We are thrilled to have received Klaff’s very generous support again this year,” said Patsy Brescia, LMMM Chairman of the Board of Trustees. “They have been steadfast supporters of the Mansion for more than 10 years and we hope for many more to come.”

Klaff’s Home Design Center was founded in 1921 in South Norwalk as a family-owned, wholesale plumbing supply store. Today, Klaff’s is the largest independent upscale home design retailer in the country, owned and operated by the second and third generations of the Klaff family. In addition to its main showroom in South Norwalk, Klaff’s operates two other full-service home design stores in Danbury and Scarsdale, N.Y.

“Klaff’s has been a very generous sponsor of LMMM donating altogether close to $300,000,” said Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum Executive Director Susan Gilgore. “The Board of Trustees and I are extremely grateful for Klaff’s continued support, which has helped the Mansion develop programs that truly make a difference in the life of our communities.”

    NON ~ Thanks for highlighting the Norwalk-Nagarote Sister City Project’s cabaret this Sunday. Like all non-profit organizations, our Project seeks donations continually (the Project has no paid staff, so all contributions benefit Nagarote’s kids). This event is meaningful to us because our supporters will enjoy a terrific evening of music and networking with friends, as well as contributing to our Project.
