Pat Heublein – Memorial

In Memoriam

Patricia Meyer Heublein

March 17, 1933 – July 2, 2014

Patricia Heublein was a woman of vision. She started the Friends of Heublein Tower, Inc. in 1984 for the purpose of furthering the heritage of the Heublein family while improving the sustainability of the Heublein Tower.

Pat was at a recent summer gathering at the Tower and our group had a chance to honor her for her outstanding – and selfless – achievements.

The Friends has expanded greatly since our early days but one thing will not change. We will remember Pat and her warm persona for a long time to come.

Fundraiser at the Reynolds Residence

John & Garrett Reynolds graciously hosted a cocktail party at their residence in Avon, CT to benefit the Hueblein Tower. They planned the entire party, completely gratis, from sending out invitations to providing desert and coffee at the end of the evening.

Approximately 70 guests arrived at their beautifully decorated home, and were greeted with a view of the tower, lit-up as a back-drop. The guests were then treated to an array of delicious hors d’oeuvres, open bar, and live piano music.

The benefit took in approximately $6700, and the evening could not have been more wonderful.

FCSP Dinner at Heublein Tower

The Friends of Hueblein Tower hosted the annual FCSP dinner this year in the newly renovated ‘Taj Garage’.  There was little notice given to prepare, but lots and lots of work to be done.  In the days and weeks leading up to the dinner, the FOHT worked tirelessly to get the garage in decent shape.  Many hours were spent cleaning, scraping, painting, and preparing for the big event, all while keeping a sharp eye out for Bubba & his friends, (thankfully, there was no sign of them).  The men especially worked very hard, using their muscle and might to turn the old dusty garage into the ‘Taj Garage’.  The FOHT are very fortunate to have such an awesome group of guys… Thank You!
