“It is a pleasure and an honor to coordinate the social media marketing for the Big Bad Ball again this year,”said Martin Brossman, Principal, Martin Brossman & Associates. “The greatest gift we can offer Hospice from this event goes beyond the money we are raising--it's about expanding our community's awareness of how Hospice of Wake County gives us a place to deal with the most challenging moments in our lives.
