GREEN BAY - A local musician from Newtown, Connecticut now lives in De Pere.
Saturday, John Mazzariello hosted a Sandy Hook benefit concert in Green Bay.
Music filled a packed Harmony Café for the event.
It featured a silent auction to raise money for families, survivors and first responders in Newtown.
Mazzariello, who is also a former Sandy Hook student, organized the benefit.
His family still lives in Newtown, and they flew in for the fundraiser.
"It's an emotional day, much more so for them, in a lot of ways, and it's a good thing," said John Mazzariello.
"We're glad we could be a part of it, and I'd like to take the experience and the message back to Newtown," said John's father, Rick Mazzariello.
John Mazzariello's mother worked at Sandy Hook Elementary for 25 years before she retired.
She has been helping the Sandy Hook students adjust to their new school.
