The SUNY Sullivan Foundation will hold its Men Who Make a Difference Recognition on Thursday, November 2nd at 6:00pm at Bernie’s Holiday Restaurant in Rock Hill. Seven area men haven been chosen to be recognized for the contributions they make throughout the region, and beyond.

The 2017 Men Who Make a Difference by category are:

“The Foundation has chosen to honor a group of men who not only give of themselves, but who work to help who are less fortunate; at times suffering from natural disasters, who work tirelessly to protect our environment, who face challenges with strength, courage, dignity, perseverance and foresight, and who have the ability to initiate change with their ideas and determination,” said Foundation chairperson Helena Manzione.

The Men Who Make a Difference reception is open to the public. Tickets are $60 per person, which includes a buffet reception (cash bar) and can be purchased by calling Hillary Egeland, Director of Special Events and Campus Activities at 845.434.5750, ext. 4377 or by email at Individuals or organizations interested in being sponsors and or placing an ad in the event program should also contact Ms. Egeland.
