'Birthday Bash' will raise funds, honor Bridgeport girl
A Bridgeport high school principal is throwing a party Saturday for what would have been his daughter's eighth birthday, with all proceeds going toward a scholarship fund.
Henry Rondon's daughter, Leah, was hit by a car and killed in August 2015.
The annual "Birthday Bash" will take place at Kolbe Cathedral High School at 33 Calhoun Place between noon and 4 p.m. It will feature raffles, face painting, carnival games and live performances.
Funds raised are going toward the Leah Rondon Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Rondon tells News 12 he started the Lead Rondon Memorial Scholarship Fund to as a way to channel his grief into something constructive for the sake of his students.
