HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Broadway group that put on a benefit for victims of the Newtown school shooting is trying to raise more money for the town through an online auction.
Tony Award-winning Broadway producer Van Dean and composer Brett Bowles, who live in the Newtown area, organized the From Broadway With Love charity.
The auction, at http://FromBroadwayWithLove.org/auction , runs through midnight Thursday. It includes items ranging from a vacation at a Utah ski resort to New York Yankee baseball tickets, to signed posters from Broadway shows.
Proceeds benefit The United Way of Western Connecticut’s Sandy Hook School Support Fund.
In January, the group put on a concert in Waterbury featuring dozens of Broadway stars performing alongside children from Newtown for an audience that included families of the shooting victims.
