Jane E. Ballerini and Fellow Connecticut College Alumna Raise Money to Fight HungerOctober 23, 2013
NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (October 23, 2013) – Attorney Jane E. Ballerini joined her fellow Connecticut College alumna and crew mates this past weekend to row in the Woman’s Alumni Eights at the 49th Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, MA. The women’s eight rowed their fastest time of the past three years. While they did not win their event at the Regatta, they earned first place in the eyes of New London residents who depend on The New London Community Meal Center for nutritious meals. This year the team raised over $1,000.00, surpassing their individual and team goals. The Community Meal Center was established in 1985 to respond to the needs of New London’s most vulnerable residents by providing meals in a kind, hospitable and clean environment. The Center serves approximately 35,000 residents per year.
Ms. Ballerini remarks, “Having spent four years in New London, it made sense for us to raise money to give back to the community that we were an integral part of during our college years.”
Attorney Ballerini is not new to advocacy, social services or working to improve human welfare. While in law school she spent a semester interning at New Haven Legal Assistance working with children and families in the Health Law Partnership for Families (HeLP) Clinic at the Hospital of Saint Raphael. Since becoming an attorney, she has participated in the Lawyer Referral Service and is regularly involved in local charitable events. Currently, Ms. Ballerini is an attorney with the New Haven Connecticut law firm of Neubert, Pepe & Monteith practicing primarily commercial and business law.
The crew that raced in this year’s boat hope that they have set an example for the alumni that participate in the race in coming years. “We have to continually challenge ourselves to do more-more for our peers, more for our communities, and more for those who are less fortunate,” states Ms. Ballerini. “Of course, it never hurts to have fun and get in shape while doing so!”
