2007 EVENTS & NEWS
“HIT THE COURSE” FOR CORSE GOLF TOURNAMENT
On September 28th 2007, the Foundation held its first annual “Hit the Course” for CORSE Golf Tournament at the award winning Widows Walk Golf Course in Scituate, Massachusetts. Over 100 golfers, both skilled and amateur, had a great time under blue skies in the scramble style tournament with a shot gun start. Following the tournament, golfers and friends were invited to a dinner and auction at the River Club. Guests enjoyed a buffet dinner, a silent and live auction, raffles, and the tournament winners were announced.
A special thanks to all those that planned and supported this successful event: co-chairs Jen Roche and Kristin Erickson, the golf tournament committee, our sponsors, and all the individuals and businesses that donated to the tournament.
The proceeds of over $13,000 will aid the CORSE Foundation in continuing its efforts in providing supplemental resources and programs to students with special needs in our community.

The fundraiser was a tremendous success with $30,000 raised for the Foundation. The Foundation’s Board was overwhelmed by the generous support from the community in all aspects of this event: everything from the auction donations, lively bidders to the tireless work of the volunteers. The evening was not only remarkable in the amount of funds raised; it was a wonderful evening to come together as a community of parents, educators and friends in support of our students with special needs. Our heart-felt thanks to all of our contributors.
