Taking Heart

Spurwink held its annual Have a Heart for Spurwink benefit at the Hope Club in Providence. More than 100 supporters turned out, raising $35,000 to assist children, adults and families with developmental disabilities and emotional and behavioral disorders. Director Michael Corrente made a guest appearance at the live auction — and sparked a bidding war — by donating a day on the set of his movie The Prince of Providence, the story of former Mayor Buddy Cianci.
