Conductors Of The Community: Healthcare Heroes

Presented by the Massachusetts State Lottery

The Conductors of the Community program, presented by the Massachusetts State Lottery, was designed to honor individuals who have made a significant and positive impact in the Worcester community.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Railers and Massachusetts State Lottery shifted their focus from honoring our traditional community heroes to honoring our healthcare heroes working tirelessly on the front lines.

Each recognized honoree received $250 worth of Lottery Instant Tickets as a thank you for their selflessness and dedication to helping others.
