Thank You Scituate for Giving CORSE a Home!!
And Another Fabulous CORSE Foundation Gala!
Once again, our community came out in droves to support the Scituate CORSE Foundation (Community of Resources for Special Education) at our 8th annual Gala on November 2nd. We were again full to capacity with cheerful guests, unbelievable auction items and many touching moments. We hope everyone had a wonderful evening!
CORSE would like to acknowledge all those individuals and businesses that donated to and participated in the event’s success. None of this would be possible without Gina McClellan (Gala Chairperson) leading our Gala Committee, The River Club, Maureen Hunnefeld (50/50 raffle coordinator), Mike Connor (Auctioneer) and Dom D'Arcangelo (DJ). A special thank you to our community’s families (McClellan, Johnston, Avallone, Milligan, O’Neill, Block, Collari, Teixeira, Flanagan, Rodgers, Goyette) whose children put on a show-stopping, heartfelt performance singing Philip Phillips’ song “Home” on stage led by music teacher Peter Mundt.

Thank you for being part of our “Community of Resources”, allowing us to provide integrated social, academic and recreational programming that children with special needs can successfully participate in with their peers and neighbors. We are very grateful for your continued support!
