CT Against Gun Violence Annual Benefit Luncheon
Draws Record Attendance

Number of gun violence prevention supporters continues to grow.

Greenwich, CT – CT Against Gun Violence (CAGV) enjoyed a record turnout for its 10th Annual Benefit Luncheon at the Greenwich Country Club. The substantial increase in attendance seen in 2013 following the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting has continued to grow year by year. This year the guest total neared 400, filling the main room of the Club to capacity.

As a key source of financial support for the legislative advocacy and education efforts of CAGV, the fundraiser exceeded previous years’ attendance and fundraising. Board President Marty Isaac noted that CAGV’s success as one of the leading state-wide groups in the nation was due in no small part to the exceptional knowledge and expertise of its executive director, Ron Pinciaro, who has led the organization for the past 15 years. Isaac told supporters, “Having a professional, paid staff requires resources. Your generosity each year is what makes it possible.”

Our Event to Celebrate President Obama Executive Action a Big Success

[metaslider id=1412]

Thank you all for joining us at the Burr Homestead in Fairfield on Sunday to celebrate President Obama’s Executive Action on common sense gun violence reform.

It was a great celebration and a chance for some stimulating and informative conversation with our Senator Richard Blumenthal.

Three things you can do keep the momentum going:

  1. Watch the President’s final State of the Union address tonight at 9:00. Governor Malloy will be seated with Michelle Obama; there will be an empty chair for victims of gun violence.
  2. Have a House Party. We can come and talk to you and your like-minded friends about how we can work together to keep us safer from gun violence.
  3. Share our tweets @cagvnews or our Facebook postings (CT Against Gun Violence).
