    “Ben Callahan Memorial Foundation and The Town of Branford Announce a town wide Scavenger Hunt”
    Local Non-profit celebrates Branford’s 375 birthday
    Branford, CT: Today, The Ben Callahan Memorial Foundation is offering a unique opportunity for business organizations and community members to actively build community spirit during the Branford Festival in honor of Ben Callahan and the Town of Branford’s 375th anniversary. This fun, all inclusive, summer activity will honor Ben Callahan, the 375th anniversary of the towns founding, and pay tribute to our wonderful community.
    Ben Callahan, a stand out 3 sport athlete, musician, scholar, and humanitarian passed away in a tragic drowning accident on July 7th, 2017. His reach amongst the local community was immense and his legacy has spread internationally. Ben’s infectious smile, boldness, compassion, and character brought together thousands of people in the wake of his death including family, friends, teammates, coaches, bandmates, opponents on the field, and countless lives who had been impacted by the way he lived. In his honor, the Ben Callahan Memorial Foundation was founded with the purpose of serving middle and high school children in and around the community and spreading the same hope of eternity that Ben carried in his heart. The foundation hopes to enhance the community’s educational needs, sports teams, enrichment and music programs
    This is a unique opportunity to celebrate not just the rich history of our town, but also to recognize what makes it such a wonderful place to live. We want everyone to get involved, share their joy and have fun, as we invite all “Branfordians” to participate and support the “1st annual Ben Callahan Memorial Scavenger Hunt”
