Meet the Honorees
When they see a person in need or a cause worth fighting for, these men and women are there to help. Their personal stories enlighten and inspire everyone who comes in contact with them. We are proud to introduce you to our sixth annual Light a Fire honorees.

Crossing Party Lines
We go behind the scenes with over-the-top event planner Brett Galley to find out what it takes to plan a party for Hugh Jackman, Robert De Niro, Whoopi Goldberg and many more.  

Truly Grassroots  
With the recent addition of a historic backcountry farm to its nearly 800 acres of protected land, the Greenwich Land Trust proves just how far it has come from its one-man-show beginnings.

The Color of Funny    
Maria Scrivan thinks outside the box and colors outside the lines—and that’s just her day job. The young up-and-comer defies those who say her work is a dying art and shows just what talent and perseverance can reap.

The Big Day  
No matter what your wedding style, we have great ideas to help you create the perfect day filled with grace, style and a touch of whimsy.
