Operation Hope gala to honor Bigelows
Operation Hope, the Fairfield nonprofit that manages homeless shelters, a community kitchen and transitional housing, will hold its 11th annual "Evening of Hope Gala" honoring Cindi Bigelow, the president of Bigelow Tea Co., and her family at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 17, in the Patterson Club, 1118 Cross Highway.
The Bigelows will be recognized for their contributions to the agency, according to a release.

Proceeds will benefit Operation Hope's programs.
