After three successful years running the Raveis Ride + Walk, a company run event to raise money for cancer research, Bill Raveis was honored by Moffly Media for his charitable contributions. The Light A Fire Awards salute individuals and organizations from across lower Fairfield County who have gone beyond the ordinary to extraordinary in their giving back to our community. From philanthropists and volunteers to organizations helping families, children and other members of our communities, the honorees are truly unique.
