Doug Bacon of Red Paint Hospitality Group recently donated more than $21,000 to the Winship School following a recent fundraising campaign in his several Brighton-area restaurants. This is the second consecutive year Mr. Bacon has given such a generous donation to the school. Last year, around $15,000 was donated to the Winship School Library for the purchase of new computers and books. This year's grant will be used to fund improvements in the Winship's Makerspace and in classroom libraries and supplies. Thank you, Mr. Bacon and Red Paint Hospitality!
