Traditionally, the CHF sponsors several activities and events. These include:
• Awards given annually at the Foundation banquet for outstanding contributions to the preservation of the heritage and culture of Comfort based on the dictum that: `It is better to preserve than repair, better to repair than restore, better to restore than reconstruct.`
