Hartford Legends Feted at Awards Banquet


Walter "Doc" Hurley, Bob Steele and George Cruz were honored last Sunday afternoon, at Neutral Corner's Annual Awards Banquet held at the Chowder Pot, for their contributions to boxing in the Hartford area over many years.

The event was attended by a diverse crowd ranging from candidates for political office to Boy Scout Troop 105 and a youth group from the Hartford Housing Authority. Former Lt. Governor Joseph Fauliso addressed the large crowd with a talk that stressed the need for a strong moral foundation for our youth and said that sports can be a major factor contributing to the development of character in young people.

Attendees included Hartford mayor Mike Peters, city councilman Mike McGarry, Democratic candidate for Congress from the first district John Larson, Attorney General Richard Richard Blumenthal, city treasurer Denise Nappier, state Senator Billy Ciotto and state Rep. Evelyn Mantilla.
