Make-A-Wish Connecticut Appoints Lawrence Calcano to Board of Directors


February 12, 2017

Make-A-Wish® Connecticut is proud to announce that it has appointed Mr. Lawrence Calcano to its Board of Directors, where he will contribute to the Make-A-Wish mission to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Mr. Calcano is currently the Chief Executive Officer at iCapital Network as well as having a significant board experience, currently sitting on the boards of Capitol Acquisition Corp. III and the Mental Health Association of New York.

Mr. Calcano has been intertwined with Make-A-Wish for many years. He has had previous experience with the organization through close friends, and believes very strongly in the mission of Make-A-Wish.  He is determined to leverage his experience as both an executive and a director to help with the growth strategy of the foundation, enabling us to serve more children and broaden the scope of the organization’s mission, vision and values.

“Having supported the Make-A-Wish organization in the past, my wife and I have had the chance to see up close the great work that the organization does in making the life threatening challenges faced by Wish kids every day just a bit more bearable and create hope where it might not otherwise exist.  I am excited by the opportunity to get more involved in helping this great organization turn even more tears of sorrow into tears of joy for so many deserving children.”

Make-A-Wish Connecticut is proud to have Mr. Calcano’s presence and expertise on the Board of Directors and looks forward to the accomplishments ahead.
