We’re better together. Many of us here at Corinthian Events have a deep commitment to volunteering and helping out with community events to strengthen our ties to the organizations and causes we feel most passionate about.
Every winter, the Salvation Army turns the Castle at Park Plaza, which Corinthian Events manages, into the “Christmas Castle,” creating an incredible Christmas celebration for children who may otherwise not have the luxury of new presents. Because of this relationship we were invited to volunteer at the Salvation Army’s Back to School Celebration where kids, ages 5-17, were invited to enjoy a day of fun, on the court, at TD Garden. The day ended with picking up a backpack filled with school supplies to start their year off right. Our Corinthian Events Team was positioned at the backpack distribution center – our job was to ensure organized backpack hand offs and proper exiting – we were totally up to the challenge! Check us out!
Here Erin, our newest team member, and Claudia passing out extra notebooks. All the backpacks already contained 1 notebook but who just needs 1? Extras were a great idea!
Maureen is passing backpacks to a middle school child here. The ‘older kids’ had a choice of blue, black or red bags filled with school supplies. Most popular color? Definitely red!
Elizabeth is keeping her backpack station stocked full. Way to go!
Having the opportunity to volunteer at organizations which we work with throughout the year is pretty awesome.
Lovelane is a special needs horseback riding program. Not only have we had the opportunity to plan their bi-annual fundraising event but our team member Natalie volunteers regularly at the farm. She is also the most avid runner on our team. She takes part in their Run for Lovelane each year for this wonderful group! Their bi-annual Hoedown is coming right up on September 24th!
Other team members enjoy supporting the causes they are most passionate about through running as well. Claudia has participated in many runs including Avon for Breast Cancer, Team Chase for Autism, Susan Komen Triangle Race for the Cure, and Wings for Life. For Maureen, the AIDS walk is closest to her heart, she has participated 10 times!
Check out Micha and Megan above. They have completed charitable races together a number of times! Here they are after the 26th Annual Jennifer Tinney Memorial 4th of July Road Race in support of Jennifer Tinney Scholarship Fund at Masconomet High School.
Supporting causes that speak to us is important at Corinthian Events. We love to help whenever we can and we are looking forward to our next opportunity!
