MANCHESTER — Residents held a fundraiser Thursday for the family of Barry “Mitch” Mitchell who died suddenly last week.

Mitchell was a staff member at Manchester High. He died after having a heart attack on Wednesday at school.

People came out to Maggie McFly’s restaurant at the Shoppes at Buckland Hills. The restaurant promised to donate 15% of all purchases between 7 and 11 p.m.to Mitchell’s family.

Hundreds turned out last week on the school’s football field to remember Mitchell. A student produced a video with interviews of staff and students recalling how special Mitchell was.
