Celebrating the 2018 Difference Makers
Back in late 2008, the management team at BusinessWest conceived a new recognition program.
It was called Difference Makers because this would be a trait shared by those who would be honored — they were all making a difference in the community. The goal was, and is, to show the many ways in which an individual or group can make a difference, and suffice to say this goal has been met.
And the class of 2018, the program’s 10th, makes this even more abundantly clear, as the stories below show.
This year’s sponsors are Health New England, Royal, P.C., and Sunshine Village.
The six members of the Class of 2018 will be honored on Thursday, March 22 at the Log Cabin Banquet & Meeting House in Holyoke. For information about that event, sponsorship opportunities, or to purchase tickets, go HERE or call (413) 781-8600, ext. 100.
