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.”
