STRATFORD - People in Stratford cooked for a cause yesterday at the town's Shakespeare Theater.

The Mighty Quinn Foundation hosted its annual barbecue contest to raise money for high school and college studens to study Shakespeare.

Foundation members say they're excited to host their annual barbecue because they want to expand youth theater in the Stratford and Fairfield area.

The foundation's goal is to raise $20,000 to start a Shakespeare Academy.
