To kick off the event, Virginia Prescott of NHPR will interview John E.

John Lynch has been invited to present The Corporate Fund Nonprofit Management Award, which is given annually to two outstanding nonprofit organizations in honor of businessman and philanthropist Walter J. Dunfey. Visit to register for tickets, which are $150 for members and $200 for non-members. — KATHLEEN CALLAHAN/NEW HAMPSHIRE BUSINESS REVIEW
