Celebrating 20 Years of Providing Opportunity Through Education
As you may have heard, last year, with state budgetary constraints we nearly lost our funding. Through the help of our staff, students, Board of Directors, and state politicians we were able to have our funding renewed but it isn’t enough! We need a spectacular fundraiser to ensure the future of our programs.
On June 20th are celebrating 20 years of ongoing programs with The Red Carpet Gala. Join us at Lombardo’s for drinks, dinner, and a silent auction to celebrate some of the people who have been part of the RCP family.

Community COrnerstone Award
The Community Cornerstone Award is given to someone who has shown to be an advocate for RCP and adult education. This person has fought for the continued success of our programs and our community.
This year we are awarding the Community Cornerstone Award to Massachusetts State Senator Walter F. Timilty. Senator Timilty has always been available to support our organization, from attending our events to picking up the phone when we need to discuss anything. He has worked over the years to really become part of the RCP family.
Last summer when we were told we were losing state funding, Senator Timilty spearheaded a group of State and local politicians to fight for our program. With their support and the increase for Adult Education in the state budget, RCP was refunded!
We are grateful to all of the work Senator Walter Timilty has done for Randolph Community Partnership.
