About the Fitzgerald Dinner
The annual Fitzgerald award dinner recognizes public figures who help advance our mission of improving gun laws in Maine. Past honorees include Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, US Senator Susan Collins, Sherriff and Sen. Mark Dion, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Margaret Groban.

The award is named for the late Buzz Fitzgerald, who co­founded the Maine Gun Safety Coalition with Congresswoman Chellie Pingree and attorney William Harwood following the Columbine High School Massacre in 1999. The Fitzgerald dinner supports our legislative initiatives, education programs, and the Free Trigger Locks program.

Maine Gun Safety Coalition is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a lunch with Avery Gardiner, the new co-President of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence!

Learn about Brady's recent legal successes, including holding gun manufacturers and sellers accountable in the courts and protecting the right for doctors to discuss safe gun storage with patients. Ms. Gardiner will also address topics such as the Supreme Court, expanding Brady background checks, and changing culture. Bring your questions for a lively discussion about the past, present, and future of Second Amendment litigation.
