Former Buffalo Bills coach Marv Levy will be guest of honor at the 21st annual Buffalo Nite here Sept. 23.
Levy, who was special teams coach of the Washington Redskins in 1972, will be given an award at the party by Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y., and Rep. Charles B. Rangel, D-Manhattan.
Prior recipients of the award include former House Doorkeeper James T. Molloy and comic Mark Russell.
The New York State Society, which is holding the event in the Hart Senate Office Building, said Levy is receiving the award because he is the "winningest coach in Buffalo Bills history with 123 victories and four consecutive Super Bowls."
The party was founded 21 years ago by Molloy and then Reps. Jack Kemp and Henry Nowak, and the late Victor Raiser, a Buffalo-born attorney who moved to Washington. Foods featured at the party include such Buffalo-made products as Sorrento Cheese, Aunt Rosie's Loganberry and Wardynski's polish sausage.
