The Ted Petrillo Community Fund has recently been established by family and friends with an interest in continuing Ted’s lifelong interest of making a difference for others and in the community. Ted was an accomplished person, from military service to that of a successful businessman in the Hudson Valley as founding Principal of Westage Companies. He served on numerous regional boards for which he was recognized with a lifetime achievement award. Many generations of business leaders considered Ted their mentor. He was an inspiration to his family, friends, business leaders and the community. This fund was established to perpetuate his legacy of giving to others. Annually, the fund will make regional awards which most significantly align with Ted’s interests, and will most greatly inspire growth, as he did.
Contributions to the Ted Petrillo Community Fund may be made to CFOS-Ted Petrillo Community Fund and sent to the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, 30 Scott’s Corners Drive, Suite 203, Montgomery, NY 12549. Secure online donations may also be made at www.cfosny.org.
