Take some time this Saturday to lend a helping hand to one of our own who's already sacrificed so much. Sgt. David Tupper, a 2002 graduate of Old Saybrook High School, suffered a traumatic brain injury during one of his two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan with the U.S. Marine Corps, and is now wheelchair bound. The community fundraiser features family-friendly fun, kids' activities, live music, food and more. Donations will be accepted at the event, and can also be sent to Support Sgt. Tupper, 2 Butterwick Ln., Old Lyme, CT 06371.
Fundraiser for Sgt. David Tupper
