HARTFORD – Hartford businessman and philanthropist Alan Lazowski will be honored at the annual Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters’ “Start Something Big” Gala, to be held at the Society Room of Hartford on Saturday, Nov. 3. At the gala, Lazowski, who is chairman and CEO of LAZ Parking, one of the largest parking and transportation companies in the nation, will receive the organization’s Visionary Leader Award.
“We are very grateful to Alan for the generosity and commitment he has shown,” said Andy Fleischmann, president and CEO of Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters. “As the son of Holocaust survivors, Alan has always given assistance to organizations that lessen human suffering, broaden horizons and address the needs of the underrepresented. Through his membership on statewide and national boards – and through his creation of the LAZ Parking Charitable Foundation – Alan Lazowski has leveraged his time, talents and resources to improve the lives of people in need of assistance.”
