Last week, your Board of Directors approved a $5,000 contribution to Georgia Special Olympics - to sponsor the Special Olympics State Horse Show that will take place May 28-29 at Wills Park in Alpharetta. More than 600 athletes, coaches, horse handlers, and volunteers will participate in this event. Together with the Rotaract Club of Atlanta, we also have the opportunity to fill ten volunteer spots at the event. More on that volunteer opportunity to follow.
This contribution is just the most recent in a long Dunwoody history of supporting Special Olympics. For more than ten years, many of us volunteered as coaches, scorekeepers, ball chasers and most importantly, cheerleaders at the basketball skills workshops at Peachtree Charter Middle School - most recently in September 2019 before COVID-19.
