Max’s Opening Helps Children’s Hospital At BMC

SPRINGFIELD – The grand opening of Max’s Tavern at the Basketball Hall of Fame in June was a culinary delight for area diners, but also a boost for the Child-ren’s Hospital at Baystate Medical Center.
Indeed, the grand opening doubled as a fundraiser for the hospital, raising $50,000 for the purchase of a nitric oxide analyzer to be used to treat young people with asthma and other lung problems, said Kathy Pappas, major gifts manager for the Baystate Health Foundation.

She called the opening a huge success for the restaurant, the city’s riverfront development efforts, and patients.
