On Thursday, July 28, Dairy Queen at 1902 Post Road in Fairfield will join with participating Dairy Queens throughout the region to host Miracle Treat Day, a national fundraising campaign for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. For every Blizzard treat sold, Dairy Queen will donate $1 or more to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since all donations to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals stay local, proceeds from each Blizzard treat sold on Thursday will benefit Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, the children’s hospital for Fairfield County and the Hudson Valley.

Fairfield Sen. Tony Hwang said, “This event is a reflection of a community that cares. The combination of a local business and the national Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to raise money to provide healthcare services for seriously ill and injured children is another example of why our community is so uniquely special. Come down for an ice cream treat and I am thrilled to support this wonderful event.”

Sen. Hwang will join with area families and local officials at 1 PM Thursday, July 28, at Dairy Queen at 1902 Post Road in Fairfield.

State Senator Tony Hwang accepts the AARP Family Caregiver Award at the CT State Capitol. Hartford CT July 20, 2016.

Sen. Tony Hwang (center) on July 20 was honored by the Connecticut AARP for his efforts to provide support to individuals who care for a loved one at home.

The Connecticut AARP presented Sen. Hwang with its Legislative Award for his work in passing the Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable (CARE) Act.
A co-sponsor of the legislation, Sen. Hwang said the new law supports caregivers “by ensuring that these unsung heroes have the information they need to provide the best possible care to their loved ones.”

The law requires hospitals to:

1) provide each patient with the opportunity to designate a caregiver upon the patient’s admission to the hospital;

2) notify the designated caregiver if the patient is to be discharged to another facility or back to his or her home, and;

3) provide the caregiver with instructions on how to perform medication management, wound care, injections or other medical tasks for the patient when the patient returns home.

“We thank Sen. Hwang for his longtime support of AARP, specifically in the area of family caregiving,” AARPCT Advocacy Director John Erlingheuser said. “This is groundbreaking legislation, and Sen. Hwang was a main force behind its passage.”

“Our shared goal continues to be to make sure that Connecticut’s more than 700,000 family caregivers receive the support and recognition they deserve,” Sen. Hwang said. “I want to acknowledge caregivers and volunteers, who lovingly work to improve the lives of seniors and their families. This recognition is humbling and very much appreciated and it also recognizes the unsung efforts of caregivers throughout our community.”

Sen. Hwang represents Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Weston and Westport.

I am strongly opposed to a new CT Mileage Tax. Are you?

Please read the following article and contact me at Tony.Hwang@cga.ct.gov .

I continue to fight for more transparency, more predictability, and better prioritization when it comes to the spending of our precious and scarce tax dollars.

We must be able to have trust in where our Connecticut tax dollars are going.
