To the Editor:
On Saturday, May 20, 13 friends of Michael Taylor staged a fundraising event at Weed Beach in Darien to benefit Shatterproof. Shatterproof is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the prevention, treatment and recovery from addiction and is currently focused on the opioid epidemic. This group conceived the idea of having a fundraiser built around a fun day at the beach to welcome the beginning of summer. They spent the last 12 months planning the event and the fun day exceeded all expectations. The “build your own boat” to race was the highlight of the afternoon with 20 teams of 4 competing.
