A local organization is raising money in honor of a young girl killed in the Sandy Hook School shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.

Catherine Hubbard was a first grader at Sandy Hook. Catherine aunt and uncle, Daniel and Kelly Sullivan, along with his cousins, live in Pittsford. 

The event is a dance this weekend for ninth and tenth graders from Pittsford Sutherland, Pittsford Mendon, Our Lady of Mercy and McQuaid High Schools. It is being held at St. John Fisher College. 

All of the money raised is going to the Catherine Violet Hubbard Foundation, which will soon be building an animal sanctuary in Catherine’s name. Their goal is to raise $2,500.
