After meeting with military staff at the Connecticut Street Armory in Buffalo to secure that location for the annual Red Brick Bench Press Championships, Dennis Brochey of Lewiston was honored with a color print of the armory as a token of gratitude by members of Co. C (Sig) 27th BSTB Army National Guard. Brochey has put on this event to support local military families and troops for 10 years. He has raised more than $94,000 since the event's inception.
Red Brick Bench Press Championship XI is scheduled for Feb. 15, 2014. It is open to both men and women of any age.
