Carver in a Washington Post story, thanks to our wonderful donors, Sarah & Matthew Schimenti!


Sarah and Matthew earmarked their wedding gifts to support Carver’s new playground to be constructed this next spring — and the Washington Post took notice!

This is not the first time this magical couple has supported the Carver mission. Here they are hosting Carver’s 14th annual Rowayton Connections party.

Here is an excerpt from the article.

Initially, Sarah Mulvaney and Matthew Schimenti intended to tell wedding guests they did not wish to receive any gifts for their June 2018 event, but relatives persuaded them to provide an option. The couple from Rowayton, Connecticut, decided to use their happy occasion to help a favorite charity. Using The Good Beginning, a registry for couples seeking charitable donations in lieu of gifts, the Schimentis solicited donations for The Carver Foundation of Norwalk, Connecticut, which provides youth programming.

“To us, our wedding was always about celebrating our love and the coming together of everyone we both love,” she said. “We have all that we need, and giving back was the least we could do.”
