Chamber raises $110,000 at gala

Published December 25. 2012 8:01PM

The Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut Foundation announced this week that it raised more than $100,000 for charitable causes earlier this month at its 29th annual Holiday Gala.

The event, held at the Mohegan Sun's Uncas Ballroom, featured a silent auction and door prizes. The $109,555 raised during the event will be given to non-profit groups that serve children after a panel reviews applications for funding.

To apply for funding, go to www.chamberect.com/foundation. Deadline for submission is Feb. 8.

In the previous decade, the Chamber Foundation had raised more than $750,000 for local groups dedicated to serving the needs of children.

The NRA has proposed stationing an armed officer in every U.S. school as a way to defend against mass shootings like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Do you support the NRA's proposal?
Yes, it's a sensible plan. An armed officer would serve as a deterrent and he or she would be able to stop an active gunman before more lives were lost.

No, I'm disappointed the NRA didn't come out with any serious suggestions.

Armed officers would help, but we also need stronger gun control laws.
