Stamford Fan Meets Greenwich NHL Hall Of Famer

National MS Society, Connecticut Chapter, sports honorees Michael Richter and Brian Leetch, both retired NHL players, pose with Bruce Tobin, co-chair of the 35th Annual MS Dinner of Champions. The trio attended the 35th Annual MS Dinner of Champions, which took place on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the Hilton Stamford Hotel, in Stamford. Richter, a resident of Greenwich, and Leetch, a resident of Boston, Mass.,  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. Tobin, of Simon Property Group, is a resident of Stamford. 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.
