Dennis Brochey honoredby jmaloni
More than 200 U.S. troops and their families were on hand recently at the Connecticut Street Armory in Buffalo to present Lewiston's Dennis Brochey certificates of appreciation and a large Minuteman statue for his efforts in raising money for military families of Western New York. To date, Brochey and 24 volunteers, hundreds of competitors and sponsors, have raised more than $94,000 for U.S. troops and their families through the annual Red Brick Bench Press Championships, which was started in 2004.
On hand to congratulate Brochey was Buffalo Mayor Bryon Brown, Assemblyman Sean Ryan and Brigadier Gen. Daniel B. Tauriello (Ret).
