Newington Hockey Fan Comes Face To Face With Greenwich Hall Of Famer

Newington resident Michael Branda poses with former New York Rangers goaltender Michael Richter, a resident of Greenwich. The pair attended the 35th Annual MS Dinner of Champions, which took place on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the Hilton Stamford Hotel, in Stamford. Richter, a U. S. Hockey Hall of Fame member, received the 2013 J. Walter Kennedy Memorial Award, an award given each year by the National MS Society, Connecticut Chapter, in recognition of the extraordinary accomplishments of gifted athletes and their championship teams. Branda, an avid hockey fan, serves as development manager with the National MS Society, Connecticut Chapter. More than 300 people attended the black tie optional event, which raised more than $360,000. Funds raised through National MS Society events ensure ongoing scientific research to help develop better treatments and a cure for multiple sclerosis, a potentially debilitating disease. Funds also provide for the continuation of programs and services offered by the National MS Society, Connecticut Chapter, to the 6,000 residents in the state battling multiple sclerosis.
