TO THE BIG E/WEST SPRINGFIELD TRUST FUND
Second Largest Donation to Date
Eastern States Exposition President and CEO, Eugene J. Cassidy made a donation of $236,423 to The Big E/West Springfield Trust Fund, the second largest gift in the fund’s history. The amount represents 1% of the Exposition’s gross revenues for 2018 and contributions to the Fund, including this year’s gift, now total $4,236,423. The check was presented in a special ceremony held at Town Hall April 23.
“The support of youth, elderly and education in our hometown is of great importance and the Exposition is pleased to have continued the tradition of donating to this fund annually for the past 25 years. Every qualifying town organization or agency should consider applying for a grant to supplement its important projects,” Cassidy said.
Fund trustees award a percentage of the donation to benefit education, youth and the elderly in West Springfield and leave the remainder to accrue. Trustees of the Fund are West Springfield Mayor William Reichelt, Cassidy, and Attorney Mary Paier Powers.
