Chicktime Springfield, MA was founded by Cora Knurek-Hogan in 2017. Cora was a college student with a whole lot of love and passion to give! After a conversation with a mentor, Cora was determined to find a way to put what little spare time she did have to good use by serving her community. After searching for what seemed like forever. she finally found Chicktime and it was a no-brainier for Cora that this is exactly what her community needed! Cora’s passion was showing love to small children who were desperately in need of nurturing and a loving smile. It was her desire to be of service to others that helped to bring this chapter to life. For as long as she could remember, Cora liked to help people feel a little bit better and make them smile a little bit brighter. Cora believed that a hug or a smile could be reassurance to a person in need. Most of all, Cora believed that love is a bright light that can help ease the darkness on anyone. Cora was certain that the benefit of love is that it is free and so easy to give, yet not enough people give it. In 2018, Cora moved on to new adventures but Chicktime Springfield will forever be grateful for the big love that she believed in that guided her to us!
