The event will take place on Thursday, September 21, at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center.
Mr. Bullard will be one of four recipients of the RACF Philanthropy Award, recognizing creative and effective charitable giving. Other honorees will include Donald S. Hall and Drs. Krishan and Jaimala Thanik.
