  • Frederick and Marjorie Hurst
  • Joe Peters, Vice Chairman, Former President, Universal Plastics

The Difference Makers Gala on March 28 will begin at 5 p.m. with networking and opportunities to meet this year’s honorees. There will be live entertainment, butlered hors d’oeuvres, a plated dinner, and more networking opportunities.

Tickets cost $75 each, with reserved tables of 10 available. The event is presented by Baystate Health/Health New England and sponsored by Burkhart Pizzanelli, P.C., Development Assocites, Royal P.C., and Viability, Inc..
