As of 1:30 p.m., Monday, May 11, 2020, the Ridgefield Recreated Images Contest has generated more than $3,000 in contributions to benefit the Ridgefield Food Pantry/Emergency Fund. Running until 5 p.m. on Friday, May 15, the contest features six classic American images recreated by Ridgefield residents using only items found in their homes. Everyone is invited to “vote” for their favorite recreated image(s) by visiting ridgefielddems.net/recreated-images-food-pantry, clicking on an image, and contributing to the Ridgefield Food Bank/Emergency Fund. Contestants donated their efforts to help neighbors in need.
The competition has tightened, with a tie for 2nd place between Aimee Berger-Girvalo’s recreation of the statue of Revolutionary War heroine Sybil Ludington and Sean & Tao Connelly’s recreation of “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima.”
