NEW HAVEN >> The March of Dimes\u2019 Connecticut\/Western MA Market will hold its 9th annual Elm City Legends awards event to honor accomplishments of individuals from Greater New Haven at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 28 at Anthony\u2019s Ocean View, according to a release. This year\u2019s 2017 Elm City Legends awards go to: Steve Parker, of the Connecticut Radio Network; Lynn Sellers, Yale-New Haven Children\u2019s Hospital NNICU; Len Matteo, of EDGE Technology Services; and Barbara DeNicola, of Hamden, the release said. Paul Fusco, a Hamden native and creator of the television show \u201cALF,\u201d was slated to be one of the honorees this year, but had to decline, as an \u201cALF\u201d feature movie is under production, the release said. However, Fusco plans to record a video segment of ALF congratulating this year\u2019s honorees, two of whom are from Hamden, as well as donating ALF memorabilia to the event\u2019s auction, the release said. The event will include a buffet-style dinner, silent auction, and more, to benefit the March of Dimes. Keith Kountz of WTNH News 8 will serve as the emcee, the release said. Tables of 10 are available for $800, and individual seats are $85 per person. Other ways to support this important cause include becoming a corporate sponsor, placing an ad in the program, donating an item to the auction, or making a 100 percent tax deductible \u201cFund the Mission\u201d gift, the release noted.
