Mayor Sarno Congratulates Springfield’s Own Vinny ‘Vinny D.” Del Negro on Receiving Basketball Hall of Fame’s 2021 Mannie Jackson Humanitarian Award

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno today congratulated his longtime family friend and old soccer teammate (that’s right soccer!), Vinny ‘Vinny D.’ Del Negro on being named to receive the 2021 Mannie Jackson Basketball’s Human Spirit Award by our very own Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame.

Mayor Sarno states, “'Vinny D.' has never forgotten his roots and heart as a native son of Springfield. He continues to give back through his Vinny Del Negro Endowment Fund in which he established to help support Brightside for Families and Children. Congrats and thanks again 'Vinny D.' on hitting another game winning 3 pointer! Look forward to seeing you during enshrinement activities. Good health and continued success to you and your family.”
