    TRUMBULL — A beer and wine tasting event in Trumbull next month will benefit Where Angels Play Foundation, the group responsible for 26 playgrounds that have been built during the past 16 months with a dual purpose. They have primarily been built in communities that were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012. Each one has also honored the memory of a woman or child killed on 12/14.

    The first playground was built in April 2013 in Sea Bright, N.J. It honored special education teacher Anne Marie Murphy.
