The staff at Employee Family Protection Inc. has donated $65,000 to the Susan G. Komen fund bringing its eight-year fundraising effort in the fight against breast cancer to $365,000.

Rose’s Legacy, the company’s annual charity golf tournament – named after one of the founding employees of EFP Rose Tomaino – began in 2005. Tomaino was vice-president of administration when she passed away after a 20-year battle with breast cancer. The company noted “her dedicated staff was passionate about raising funds in her name.”

“The dedication of Charlie Stepnowski and his staff have made a tremendous impact on the local fight against breast cancer. They have raised $365,000 over the past eight years, which is truly saving lives across our state,” said Anne Morris, CEO of Komen Connecticut.

For each of the past four years, Komen Connecticut has invested more than $1 million annually in community grants to local organizations providing lifesaving services for women in need. Komen Connecticut relies on the support of the local community to continue investing in cutting-edge research and local breast cancer programs for Connecticut women and their families.
