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.
