Paul Simon Headlines GFA Sandy Hook Fundraiser

WestportNow.com Image
Paul Simon, singer, songwriter and producer perhaps best known for his partnership with Art Garfunkle in the Simon & Garfunkle duo, was headliner tonight at a Sandy Hook fundraiser concert at Westport’s Greens Farms Academy. (See video here) The senior class, of which Simon’s daughter Lulu, 17, is a member, organized the event. It was sold out within hours of tickets going on sale this morning. Simon performed with his wife Edie Brickell as well as his daughter. Master of Ceremonies Westporter Mike Greenberg of ESPN’s “Mike & Mike in the Morning” show announced that the evening’s ticket sales and silent auction generated $37,500. Simon performed “The Sound of Silence” last month at the Stratford funeral of Sandy Hook hero teacher Victoria Soto, 27, who used her body to shield her students from the killer’s bullets. The 71-year-old New Canaan resident knows the Soto family through his nurse sister-in-law. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
