More community businesses and organizations have joined a fundraiser organized by a Red Lion nail salon and spa to benefit Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Initially, Trudy's Nails, 629 Lombard Road, planned to donate all proceeds Jan. 20 to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, through the United Way of Western Connecticut. Now, other businesses in the shopping plaza have also joined in fundraising efforts that day, said Tommy Tran, from Trudy's.

Other agencies, such as local fire and police departments, will be involved in the event. Activities will include raffles, and refreshments will be available, Tran said.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Correction: This article previously had the wrong date of the event in the headline. It takes place Sunday, Jan. 20.
