NAUGATUCK — More than $7,000 was raised for a local family during a pasta dinner fundraiser in Naugatuck Feb. 7.

The event, held at City Hill Middle School, was held for the Sego family. Money will help the family, which lost its patriarch and sole breadwinner in November.

Fred Sego, who was self-employed and had four children, died unexpectedly.

Before he died, Sego was fixing his house, which had flooding problems after the ground shifted under the property and caused major damage.

The money will go toward that and other expenses incurred by Sego’s wife and family.
