NEWINGTON - A "Raise the Roof" event was held today at the Raymour and Flanigan in Newington to benefit Charities of Hope in Connecticut.

Charities of Hope had the roof damaged this past winter and needs money for repairs.

They have been in Connecticut since 2002, giving back to local community members and holding clothing drives for those in need.
