The Granby Ambulance Association (GAA) hosted its annual fall fundraising event at the New England Air Museum in October. The event drew supporters from across the area to raise essential funds for emergency medical services (EMS) in the towns of Granby, East Granby and East Hartland.

The fundraiser featured an art exhibition, showcasing the talents of some of the area’s finest artists. As the night unfolded, guests were treated to a unique selection of fine wines from Valley Cork and Keg, as well as local beers from Almost Famous Brewing Company.

“We are deeply grateful to our local business sponsors. Many contribute to GAA year after year,” said Lorri DiBattisto, president of the GAA. “Their unwavering support and the incredible contributions from our donors, artists, volunteers and everyone who attended made this event possible and is a testament to the strong sense of community in our towns.”

The funds raised will be used to maintain GAA’s state-of-the-art equipment and to support the dedicated staff of EMTs and paramedics—two of the most essential elements of delivering prompt and professional emergency medical care.

For those who were unable to attend the fundraising event but wish to support the GAA’s mission, donations are always welcome. To donate, visit or contact for more information.
