Guests included Fidelity’s Ned Johnson, Continental Cablevision founder Amos Hostetter Jr., BSO Life Trustee Ray Stata, developer Steve Weiner and wife Roberta, singer James Taylor and his wife, BSO trustee Kim Taylor, singer Livingston Taylor and his girlfriend Gail Arnold, who is director Steven Spielberg’s private chef, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and BSO overseer Jill Hornor, astronaut Dan Burbank and wife Roslyn, event chairs Bill and Alli Achtemeyer, former Liberty Mutual CEO Ted Kelly, and BSO managing director Mark Volpe.
