GEC swings to help the developmentally disabled

Hundreds gathered at Marine Park Golf Course on June 23, for the fourth annual Guild for Exceptional Children golf outing to raise money to help support people living with developmental disabilities. “ We just want to thank all the sponsors who helped make this day happen and continue to help us try to reach our goal,” said Caroline Mansuetto, associate director of development for the organization. “We aim to help educate communities about the many ways in which individuals with developmental disabilities can give back and make the community a better place for all,” said Guild Executive Director and CEO Paul Cassone. The event featured several contests including a putting and driving range contest, as well as numerous raffles, and a Hole in One contest. An awards ceremony and dinner rounded out the afternoon, and the day concluded on a high note.The Guild was founded in 1958 by a group of mothers dedicated to getting services for their developmentally disabled children, and others living with developmental disabilities in a time when such services were virtually nonexistent. Its main focus, according to its website, is to, “provide clinical, educational, support and recreational services for the disabled along with their families to maximize the potential of all that we serve.”
