To the editor:
The fundraiser that was put on by the Iron Law Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club at the VFW in New Milford Feb. 20 for New Milford Police Officer Robert Tozzi was a success.
Officer Tozzi was the responding officer to his daughter’s fatal car accident on Route 7 in Gaylordsville on Jan. 25.
Tozzi's 4-year old granddaughter was also in the car, but she survived.
Stephanie Tozzi was a 28-year-old single parent of two children.
The response to this fundraiser was overwhelming.
Fellow law enforcement officers from as far as New York City showed up for this event.
On behalf of the Tozzi family, I would like to thank the New Milford Police Union, The Cookhouse, Alfredo's Restaurant, Jo Jo's Deli, Snack Shack Deli, Steve's Deli, New Milford VFW, R&R Security, Faith Church security and Bez Islami from Chief Energy for their generous contributions.
With the help of other local businesses through raffles and donations, we raised $14,000.
