A way to take mind off tragedy

BRIDGEPORT — As many as 5,000 tickets to a Sound Tiger’s Game on Wednesday, Dec. 19, are up for grabs in the office of the superintendent of schools.

Word of the free tickets came Monday afternoon from city school officials and the mayor’s office, along with a press release that read:

In light of these tragic events, the Mayor would like to provide Sound Tiger tickets to the parents and caretakers and encourage them to spend the evening at the sporting event with their children on Wednesday, December 19, 2012.  Tickets must be picked up in person and will be handed out on a first come first served basis.

The superintendent’s office is located on the second floor of City Hall, 45 Lyon Terrace.
