2015 Harry W. Wenz Good Neighbor Award Winner
Viscuso, a REALTOR® from Branford with Higgins Group in Fairfield is the Harry W. (Bud) Wenz Good Neighbor Award honoree for 2015. The award is given in honor and memory of Bud Wenz who served as Executive Vice President to the Connecticut REALTORS® (CTR) for 17 years. The Good Neighbor Award recognizes a REALTOR® who has made an extraordinary commitment to helping others through volunteer work.
Viscuso is a key leader in the The Melissa Marottoli Hogan Foundation. The Foundation was created in honor of Melissa Marottoli Hogan, a non-smoker, who unfortunately passed from lung cancer at the age of 31. The foundation raises awareness and seeks resources to aid in researching a cure for Lung Cancer. The Foundation’s annual Gala for a Cure has raised over one hundred thousand dollars in the past two years. Viscuso helps organize the event from start to finish, handles media relations, the recruitment of the all-important attendees, and the acquisition of Silent Auction items. MMHF support goes to the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven Hospital, where already some promising developments have been seen in the fight against Lung Cancer.
"I am honored to receive the Good Neighbor Award and happy our CT Realtor community feels strongly about finding a cure for lung cancer,” said Viscuso. “The Melissa Marottoli Hogan Foundation supports a study that is making strides in prolonging a patient’s life after being diagnosed, and the funds we raise are donated directly."
