Santa's of Sandy Hook is an organization started by Newtown High School alumni. Since it has been given so much support by Newtown, the Angels of Sandy Hook Elementary (ASHE) fund was established at Newtown Savings Bank. All the money in the ASHE fund will be given directly to the families of the victims of the tragedy at SHES on December 24th 2012.
I myself along with the help of many volunteers have joined forces with the Newtown High School alumni to see if we could raise money in the Greater Danbury Area.
An account has been opened at People's United Bank in Bethel, Santas For Sandy Hook. All the money we collect here in the Greater Danbury Area will be put directly into this fund. Once we have collected the final donations, we will close the account and hand over a check with 100% of all proceeds to the ASHE fund on behalf of the Greater Danbury Area. The reason for this separate account is to see how much we can raise outside of town of Newtown.
With the outpouring of support we have had thus far from local businesses, I have no doubt that our efforts will be truly successful.
Santa's For Sandy Hook will be hosting a benefit dinner on Thursday, December 27th at Armando's Restaurant in Bethel, CT. Dinner will be served from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. It is $20.00 per person and 100% OF ALL PROCEEDS will go to the Santa's of Sandy Hook fund (and finally the ASHE fund). All are welcome and encouraged to attend!!
