The Harvey Ball

18th Harvey Ball Smile Award to

Cliff Rucker

Rucker Cliff

Worcester Historical Museum

sincerely thanks all who participated in this year’s Harvey Ball!

The puck was dropped just a little over two years ago and it has been one win after another for the city of Worcester, thanks to Cliff Rucker.

Cliff’s rapid development to revitalize Worcester’s landscape also attracted other new and exciting activity downtown ventures.

Hundreds of well-wishers gathered on October 4 at the beautifully restored Palladium to thank Cliff for all he is doing for the city of Worcester. Thanks to Cliff’s investment in The Palladium, the historic hall was the perfect venue for hosting the 18th annual Harvey Ball. Listen to Cliff’s humble remarks on YouTube.

A special THANK YOU to all the sponsors, guests, donors, volunteers and to the Palladium and Railers staff for making this year’s Ball one of the most memorable yet.

PAST RECIPIENTS: Allen W. Fletcher, Denis Leary, Leslie Courtney, John W. Spillane, Charles F. Monahan, Jr., Richard B. Kennedy, Timothy P.
