“We are so grateful to the sponsors and community for supporting the Drive-In Movie and our programs at Cornerstone Family Programs. We had to create a fundraiser in lieu of our Annual Bowl-a-Thon and couldn’t think of a better, safer family friendly event than a Drive-In Movie” explains Gwenn DellaPelle, Director of Development. “And a huge thank you to the Cornerstone Junior Board for being such a tremendous help at the event! We couldn’t have done it without them” continued DellaPelle.
