Todd and Lisa received the award in recognition of their extensive work in helping to improve the lives of children throughout the community, including their service to the Family Service League and with Huntington High School.
Assemblyman Conte noted that the Marcie Mazzola Foundation was founded to help better the lives of abused and at-risk children and to build community awareness regarding the needs of children. The foundation is named after Marcie Mazzola, who was sexually abused by a school bus driver and who died tragically in an automobile accident. Marcie was only 21 years old at the time of her death.
