Cona Elder Law Fundraises to benefit The Lisa Colagrassi Foundation

The employees of Cona Elder Law fundraise each quarter for a different charity of their choice. From April – June 2018 Cona Elder Law is raising money for The Lisa Colagrossi Foundation , a 501(c)3 charity and U.S. leader in providing brain aneurysm awareness and education to help the public and medical community diagnose and treat brain aneurysms.

The Lisa Colagrassi Foundation's mission is to improve the lives of individuals affected by Brain Aneurysms through innovative programs that inform, inspire action, and influence better outcomes. The foundation is named after well known ABC News anchor, Lisa Colagrossi, who passed away from a ruptured Brain Aneurysm in 2015 and has been credited with saving the lives of several individuals in its first two years. 

All money raised through Cona Elder Law's fundraising will benefit the Lisa Colagrossi Foundation's national public awareness campaign featuring Whoopi Goldberg (who lost her brother to a brain aneurysm in 2015).

If you would like to donate to this worthy cause, please contact Sarah Carpenter at   or call 631.390.5000.
