A Celebration of Women for Venture
The Venture Foundation’s â€œIn Celebration of Women for Ventureâ€ event on December 9, was, by all accounts, a fabulous success!
A stellar evening for Camp Venture, hundreds of women turned out to pack the Pearl River Hilton for a spectacular night of fun and to support the important work of the agency.
This year’s guest of honor, Dr. Mary Jean Marsico, District Superintendent for Rockland BOCES, was acknowledged for her outstanding lifetime of career service in education to children and adults with developmental disabilities.
â€œMary Jean is a truly outstanding figure in our community in Special Education,â€ said Barbara Reece, the Venture Foundation’s Executive Director. â€œWe’re so proud that she got her start here at Venture,â€ she said.
Dr. Marsico’s first job working with special children was as a teenager working at the Camp Venture Summer Camp.
It was a gala evening of friendship and fun and it was just for women. This yearâ€™s proceeds will benefit Ventureâ€™s Creative Arts Department.
