This combination of products and services has created value for both scientists and ConnStem as well in fulfillment of our mission to play a role in driving “productivity, innovation and competitiveness” throughout the scientific community we serve.
November 11 was a great opportunity for ConnStem to take part in 2 events.
Ball & Socket Arts, Inc. was formed by three graduates of Cheshire High School with deep roots in the arts. That influence can be seen today in their work as artists and teachers, in music administration (New York City Ballet), and costume design (Yale School of Drama).
The trio purchased the 55,000+ square-foot Ball & Socket Factory on 3 1/2-acres in Cheshire, CT where buttons were manufactured from 1850 until 1994. The three intend to renovate the space into art galleries, classrooms, performance areas, dining/food court areas and arts-related retail spaces.
ConnStem sends best wishes to Ball & Socket Arts in their effort and we look forward to the first event!!!
Cheshire's Lights of Hope began in 2005 and takes place annually during the Fall season. Luminaries which have been placed along streets throughout the town, are lit at dusk to serve as beacons for acts of kindness, generosity and hope for a brighter world.
The event promotes volunteerism (requiring nearly 100 in 2017 from street captains to clean up crews) and encourages good citizenship. With over $770,000 raised and 100% of proceeds available, the event has helped hundreds of area families and charities including:
Multiple Sclerosis Society
Cheshire's Food Pantry
Matt Hall Foundation & Mari's Miles of Smiles
Petit Family Foundation
The Josh Budd Wounded War Vet Fund
Cheshire's Lights of Hope Scholarship Fund
Team Jenifer Beer Tasting for MS
American Cancer Society
Cheshire Youth and Social Services (food and fuel vouchers)
Vic House Tournament for Wounded Warriors
Haley’s Hope & Michaela’s Miracle
ConnStem has been honored to serve as a Lights of Hope Street Captain for the past few years. With regret, we are unable to perform this function in 2018. If you are ready to carry the torch, let us know.
ConnStem is thrilled to have participated for the 4th year in this annual event at Southington Country Club. Hosted by Charity Cycling Challenges, Inc., all proceeds from this tournament are used to benefit local Special Olympics programs in West Hartford, Cheshire, Bristol, Tri-Town and Southington. If you would like to join ConnStem for the 2018 event, please get in-touch.
ConnStem was pleased to participate in the March for Science held on April 22, 2017 in New Haven, CT. With over 3,000 supporters in attendance, we were proud to walk alongside our neighbors who actively take responsibility for the well-being of our communities and those who have buried themselves in learning for the purpose of bringing hope to others.
ConnStem was delighted to participate in the STEM program held at Wilbur Cross High School on April 11, 2017. ConnStem believes that by sharing our talents, we strengthen the communities in which we live. The half-day event was spent talking with students about their interests, sharing our experiences in science and exploring the many options available that can lead to successful careers. We would like to specifically thank Yale graduate students Olga Buzovetsky, Samantha Ziegler, and Kirsten Knecht who sought our participation and helped organize the event. ConnStem would gladly participate in the next event, so please keep us in mind.
The following is a summary of publications that cite ConnStem as their cytokine supplier. Many articles were published by local scientists who find value working with ConnStem. We want to thank each of you for including ConnStem in your research and we renew our commitment to your success.
