26 Trees benefit dinner in Danbury on Feb. 21
The Danbury Township Trustees and Ken Kostal will hold a fund-raising dinner at Big Bopper’s Restaurant, 7581 East Harbor Road in Danbury Township, on Thursday, Feb. 21, 4-8 p.m. Kostal offered to host the dinner to raise funds for The Newtown Community Fund, to help purchase 26 trees for Newtown, a close neighbor to Danbury, CT, for whom Danbury Township was named. The 26 trees will commemorate those lost in the Newtown school shootings.
The food is being donated by Big Boppers, Bassett’s Market and the Canoe Club Wine Bar and includes salad, garlic bread, spaghetti, meatballs and dessert. The cost is $10 per adult and children age 5 and under are $5. Many gifts have been donated for a raffle that will be held that evening. A fifty-fifty drawing will also be held. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased in advance at Big Boppers.
All proceeds from the dinner and raffles will be added to the fund.
Monetary donations for the trees will continue to be accepted until mid-March at both branches of the Marblehead Bank, at the Danbury Township Police Station located at 419 Bridge Road and at Danbury Township Hall, 5972 Port Clinton Eastern Road. Checks should be made payable to The Newtown Community Fund.
Reservations for dinner are not needed. For further information contact Dianne Rozak at (419) 798-4071.
