dr. Leo Donovan of Stamford celebrated his 80th birthday at Tony’s at the J House in Riverside last Saturday night with his former colleagues dr. Lou Tufano or Hamden and dr. Jay Berkowitz or Milford. All three friends were co-workers at the Franklin S. Dubois Center in Stamford. While at dinner, Donovan, an avid Red Sox fan, got a surprise call from former New York Yankees MVP and manager Bucky Dent apologizing for his tie-breaking home run against the Sox at the end of the 1978 season.
Out there… Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez, a former member of Team USA Gymnastics, visited Camp Simmons in Greenwich on Tuesday as part of KPMG’s Community Impact Day and Family For Literacy program. Hernandez, the program’s learning and literacy ambassador, read her children’s book, “She’s Got This,” to the campers. The book chronicles the story of Zoe, a little girl who wants to follow in the footsteps of a gymnast she saw on TV. KPMG’s Family For Literacy program, founded in 2008, is partnered with First Book, a nonprofit that supports education, basic needs and wellness for children. To date, KPMG has given out 6 million books to children in need.
