The Sitting Duck Tavern of Stratford, along with its co-owner State Rep. Dave Rutigliano (R-123) hosted a fund-raiser last week that benefited the “Sandy Ground project,” a group started by firefighters, police, teachers, police officers, volunteers and support staff.
The group’s mission is to build playgrounds in memory of the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting. All the proceeds of the event went to this effort. Their goal is to raise money to build 26 playgrounds all along the coast of Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York. These playgrounds are an attempt to connect two tragedies that share the same name in a way that people can never forget.
