Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy will present Billy Fuccillo with a key to the city tonight at the Rivers Casino & Resort.
According to the Daily Gazette, Fuccillo will be in the area to film commercials. McCarthy told the Gazette the auto dealer is being recognized for his work with a handful of nonprofit organizations. Fuccillo has supported groups that help domestic violence victims, veterans, hunger relief, disability services and more.
Fuccillo owns Fuccillo Automotive Group which has dealerships in Florida and upstate New York, including Syracuse, Watertown, Buffalo, Rochester and the Capital Region.
His famous line in car commercials typically ends with: "It's huge!"
Or, more accurately, "IT'S HUUUUGE-GA!!!"
But did you know that's also what Fuccillo calls his official corporation in paperwork filed with New York State? It's Huge Inc., has its own state ID: 3138034 and date of filing: Dec. 15, 2004.
Fuccillo began selling cars after graduating Syracuse University in 1979.
