Maria DeNitto was born Maria Torino in the town of Ariola just outside of Naples. Maria arrived in New York as a young girl in 1956 accompanied by her father, Pasquale Tirino, and her two brothers. Her mother Elvira had arrived 6 months earlier. They settled into the South End of Albany where she attended St. Anthony’s school and Cardinal McCloskey High School.


In 1970 while visiting Italy she met Luigi DeNitto they were married in August of that year. The Denitto’s have two children Mimmo and Anna Rita. They own and operate their own business in the City of Albany called Fiorello Imports Luigi’s Deli.


As a charter member of the IACC her love for the club is paramount. She followed her fathers example of service in the club by chairing the pavilion committee. Maria’s influence can be seen all around the club.



Tony Fazio was born and raised in the Gun Hill Road area of the Bronx. He was the youngest of three children born to Biagio and Josephine Fazio. He attended a trade High School (Food and Maritime Trades) Tony has been married to his wife Terri for 56 years and together they have three children: Robert, Cristina, and Marc.


Since joining the club, Tony has volunteered to do whatever he was asked, from landscaping, cooking burgers at the pool, or selling pull tabs on Friday night in the pavilion. Tony is always there with a big smile and a sense of "we are in this together." Friday Nights in our pavilion would not be the same without hearing Tony yell "We Got A Winner" in his famous NYC accent. Tony has left a mark on our club simply because he cares and wants to be of service in any way he can. In 2023 the IACC presented Tony with the Pasquale Tirino Service Award.
