The Housatonic Community College Foundation will honor Robert D. Scinto at the 9th annual HCC Foundation Gala from 6 to 11 p.m. on April 21 in the stunning new Lafayette Atrium, located at the College.

The gala celebrates the 50th anniversary of Housatonic Community College and honors exceptional individuals in the areas of philanthropic and academic excellence. Scinto will be honored with the Community Service Award, recognizing his outstanding commitment to improving our community.

The event will feature a cocktail party with tastings, music, dancing, food, a variety of speakers and student performances.

The 2018 HCC Award Winners include: The Allison Family Foundation will receive the Friend of The College Award, Robert D. Scinto will receive the Community Service Award, the Distinguished Alumni Award will go to Hon. Judge Eddie Rodriguez Jr. and the Young Alumni Award will be presented to Dr. Yusuff Abdu.

The evening will provide important funds for student scholarships, and will provide funds for student advising and academic programs of the College. The gala will take place on the Housatonic Community College campus, located at 900 Lafayette Blvd. in Bridgeport.
