The Glimpse of Light Gala is an event dedicated to showcase, highlight and commemorate the great contributions made by our community members as they illuminate our community – with special emphasis on our Waterbury youth.
The entire evening was fantastic and we are honored to have been invited to attend. The event was hosted by talented (and hilarious) comedian Think Floyd.
Chemist Mr. David B. Love was a delightful speaker. Mr. Love is a waterbury native who has dedicated his life to promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Read about Mr. Love’s Modern-day Technology Leader’s award here.
