The Southport Racquet Club will host a "block party" fundraiser for Trinity Parish Nursery School, Operation Hope and the American Red Cross in the wake of Hurricane Sandy on Friday, Dec. 7.

It will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. at the club, 226 Old Post Road.

The event, which will be free, will include light food, drinks, music and representatives from the school, Operation Hope and the American Red Cross, according to a release.

There will be no admission fee, but attendees are asked to consider making a donation to one of the organizations.

The organizations were chosen based on their need and programs they have under way in the community.

The church's nursery school, library and offices were damaged by the storm and its four furnaces, ground-floor electrical system and air-handler were destroyed.

More than 100 children and teachers have had to move to Bridgeport's Holy Trinity Greek Church while repairs are made.

Operation Hope runs a homeless shelter in downtown Fairfield, serves those who are hungry, homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Fairfield town officials and emergency personnel have referred those who wish to help their neighbors impacted by Hurricane Sandy to the American Red Cross.

Contributions will be tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
