Al's Angels' 'Angels in July' Saugatuck River Bridge Lighting to Benefit Children in Need
Date:7/7/2009

WESTPORT, Conn., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Fairfield County residents will have the opportunity to witness a special, one night only holiday event tomorrow as they celebrate the traditional lighting of the Saugatuck River Bridge at dusk. Those who purchase tickets to the event, in advance or at the door, will enjoy cuisine and drink from some of the areas finest restaurants. They will also have the chance to participate in a silent auction that includes items up for bid from local restaurants as well as original paintings, vacation homes, and more -- all for a wonderful cause!

Event Details:

  • When: Wednesday, July 8 from 6:00 pm ET - 9:00 pm ET
  • Where: Saugatuck Rowing Club, Westport, CT
  • Ticket price: $75.00 per person - Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door
  • Sponsorship Opportunities are also available

All proceeds from this event will go directly to Al's Angels, a grass-roots organization founded by Internet marketing entrepreneur Al DiGuido to help families and children challenged by cancer, rare blood diseases, AIDS and domestic violence. The mission of Al's Angels is to send a clear signal that the children suffering from these diseases are not alone and that there is now hope because they are joined by a legion of Angels ready to fight for them. It is because of this that the Saugatuck River Bridge will be known that night as the "Bridge of Hope" and the lighting will stand as a beacon for those in need.

For DiGuido, the work of Al's Angels is just another chapter in a career marked by success. Long recognized as one of the direct response industry's premier innovators and a pioneer in email communications, he is currently the CEO of Zeta Interactive, a leading digital marketing agency. DiGuido got his start in interactive media at publishing giant Ziff-Davis, where he transitioned from the print side to lead the media company's e-commerce group.

In addition to his contributions to the email marketing community, DiGuido is an equally committed and passionate contributor to the charitable organization "Tomorrows Children's Fund", one of the Al's Angels beneficiaries. His work with the organization includes the coordination of several annual events and fundraising initiatives that have generated millions of dollars in contributions. It was through his Tomorrows Children's involvement that he decided to found Al's Angels in late 2004, where he could work to help a wider circle of charities and an ever-expanding list of families.
