Green Bay community reaches out to Sandy Hook victims

Posted:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Some Northeastern Wisconsin residents are showing their support for the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims.

John Mazzariello shared his music at a benefit he organized in Green Bay. The De Pere man went to Sandy Hook from kindergarten through 5th grade. His parents still live in the small Connecticut town that went through tragedy last year when 26 people were killed at an elementary school. His mom is an administrator at the school.

"Green Bay stands with them, which it obviously does from the turnout here and from the response from local businesses," says Mazzariello. "I want them to know that they're cared about that they're loved, and they're not alone in this."

All proceeds go to the Newtown Memorial Fund. Mazzariello's father is an organizer. They say the money will immediately help the victim's families, provide scholarship assistance and fund a memorial for the community.
