Cooper's Collection


Like many parents of children with epilepsy, my wife Lori and I sometimes feel helpless in his fight to become seizure free. So we decided to create and develop the website “Cooper’s Collection”. “Cooper’s Collection” is an on-line retail site for the sale of our outdoor wood furniture line and other associated products.  “Cooper’s Collection” is named after my son Craig “Cooper” Grochowski who suffers from partial/complex seizure disorder.  5% of all sales will be donated to Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE).

Make Memories that Make a Difference

Shingle Creek
Orlando, FL

In 1937, Bing Crosby invited a group of friends to get together for some golf, a clambake, and most importantly, to raise a little money for local charities.... the rest is history.

In 2017, Southbury, CT residents Joe LaCava and David Fradkin are inviting a group of their friends to get together for some golf, food, beverages, and most importantly to raise awareness and a little money for meaningful charities.... the rest will be history.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit CURE. View the flyer or visit S4epilepsywalk.com for more information.
