SOUTHINGTON  — The NRA will no longer hold their fundraiser at the Aqua Turf following the controversy last month.

The Connecticut chapter of the “Friends of the NRA” held a fundraiser at the Aquaturf in Plantsville for a number of years.

“It was an excruciatingly difficult decision to make as we had formed a 25-year client/ venue relationship. The Aqua Turf Club appreciates the understanding and support of the NRA.” said the banquet facility in a statement.

The tickets were listed at $65 a piece. The event featured gun auctions and raffles.

Some gun control advocates called for schools to not hold their proms or other events at the venue.
