    Donn Cabral, of Glastonbury, qualified for the finals of the steeplechase in the London Olympics Friday.

    Donn Cabral, an Olympic Steeplechase runner from Glastonbury, will be in his hometown on Friday to sign autographs and raise money for the Newtown Memorial Fund.

    He will sign autographs at Monaco Ford from noon to 2 p.m.  and the suggested donation is $5 to go to the fund created to provide a memorial for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

    Cabral, who finished in eighth place in the 3,000 meter Steeplechase, is also hosting a silent auction and will raffle what he calls “a few sweet pieces of classy Ralph Lauren Olympic sweaters, jackets and hoodies.”

    Cabral will be in the showroom at the dealership, located at 767 New London Turnpike in Glastonbury.
