Calcagni Real Estate Helps 11 Year Old’s Wish Come True

Calcagni Real Estate Helps 11 Year Old’s Wish Come True

Since our founding over 50 years ago, Calcagni Real Estate has been committed to supporting the local communities where we work and live. Because our business is to help our Connecticut neighbors buy and sell their homes, we know firsthand how much it means to be a part of the lives of those who share our beautiful Nutmeg State!

Recently, Calcagni worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut to help make the wish of an 11-year-old Roxbury resident come true. His wish? A “glamping” style tent where he could pair his love of the outdoors with a cool place to hang out with his brother and friends.

On May 23, 2022, the “wish” was granted–and, in the true spirit of community, there were many people who helped bring this wish to fruition. Connecticut-based businesses Humble Hideaways provided an in-kind donation that helped make this work possible, and Eastland Enterprises provided the transport. Calcagni Real Estate Realtor Ralph Riccio, a “Wish Ambassador,” helped to piece this project together, securing a donation from Calcagni Real Estate to cover the cost of transporting the glamping structure from Meriden to Roxbury.

“Ralph Riccio embodies the spirit of Calcagni Real Estate,” notes President and Broker, Antonio Liguori. “His passion for helping others extends far beyond his role as a Realtor, and this partnership with Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut is another example of how his care for others has made a difference. When Ralph approached us about helping to grant this wish, it was an honor to be able to give a resounding ‘yes.’ We’re so pleased to know that a young Connecticut resident has had his wish come true thanks to a group of dedicated people from all over the state who share a common philanthropic vision.”

We “wish” the recipient of this glamping delivery countless happy adventures ahead!
