MILFORD- A fundraiser for the Britton John Broatch Memorial Foundation
will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. July 13 at Crush Sports Cafe in Milford.
The event will feature wine, beer
and scotch tasting, as well as food, live music and raffle prizes, organizers said in a release.
10th annual fundraiser is in honor of life-long Milford resident and Joseph A.
Foran High School graduate, Britton John Broatch (BJB), who died suddenly in
2003 at age 25 of a stroke," the release said. "After nine years of hosting popular Wiffle
tournaments on Foran athletic fields, fundraiser organizers opted to switch to
the wine, beer and scotch tasting format to keep things fresh."
"The BJB Memorial Foundation was created by family and friends
shortly after Britton’s death and gives annual scholarships to Foran High
seniors," the release said. "The 2013 scholarship recipient was awarded to Milford's Nomin
Munkhbat, who will be majoring in Mechanical Engineering at the University of
Connecticut in the fall."
The BJB Memorial Foundation also donates to local and
international charities, such as Crop Walk, Habitat for Humanity, Camdyn's
Fund, Tex Kane Sholarship Fund, the Heron Family Fund, the Ralph J. Russo Fund,
the Mike Burke Educational Fund, the John Tartaglio Fund, the MS Society,
